The work of the Social Justice Network team is at the heart of the diocesan vision that we are ‘changed lives changing lives’, as we help to transform our communities through social action. The expertise of the core team will continue to work with the diverse, knowledgeable, and passionate people in our parishes and deaneries, through campaigning and community engagement, as well as encouraging, supporting, and advising on parochial and deanery projects and plans that seek to help the most vulnerable in our society.  The team runs a portfolio of projects working with the poor and homeless, people released from prison, refugees and asylum seekers in Kent and France, victims of trafficking and slavery, rural communities and those living with disabilities, and community initiatives of various kinds.

The Social Justice Network will bring people in the diocese together to share best practice and build capacity in Christian social action. We will deliver work through innovative partnerships with other charities, voluntary organisations, and local authorities. We aim to improve access to resources, make local work more effective, and help us all to respond to the social challenges in our diocese.
