Leeds has followed Birmingham to become the secondlocal authority to sign up to the Faith Covenant drafted by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Faith and Society. The hope is that other local authorities will work with faith communities to adopt a form of the covenant specific to their locality. Those interested should contact Faith Action for advice in the first instance. Listen to why Leeds thinks it's a good idea here. Will your Borough be the first to sign up?
