CARE – Christian Charity
What is CARE involved with?
Making a Christian difference for the sake of the future.
CARE (Christian Action, Research and Education) has its roots in the 1971 Nationwide Festival of Light which took place in Trafalgar Square on 25 September 1971. By early evening, 60,000 Christians had gathered together, with the aim of lobbying government about social issues of the time.
In 1988 CARE moved to 53 Romney Street in Westminster, nearer to the Houses of Parliament. During the next few decades CARE grew into distinct departments to address different social needs: CARE for Education (schools), Care Confidential (women), Caring Services, Care for the Family (family life), long term and remand Fostering and Evaluate (sex and relationships education).
CARE’s vision is to see a society that has a greater respect for the sanctity and value of human life from fertilisation to its natural end. The organizations aims to achieve this vision by:
- Promoting Christian action, research and education to support children, single people, marriage and family life effectively.
- Encouraging Christians to pray for society
- Assisting Christians to understand social and moral issues in public policy, education and the community.
- Challenging Christians to become actively involved in the democratic process, to be effective salt and light where there is a need for truth and justice.
- Equipping Christians to show the love of Christ in their communities through practical caring.
