stories from the edge
Faith communities in post-industrial towns across Scotland are delivering social action to tackle the effects of poverty and to try to create a Good Society.
Many of these projects are dealing with ever-growing need and are stretched thin. Everyone is aware of the effects of poverty in big cities, but less attention is paid to the towns which were the heartlands of manufacturing industry.
This conference creates a space where 'faith-inspired social activists' from those towns can come together:

          • Sharing stories
          • Critical reflection
          • Exploring existing aspects of what makes a Good Society locally and nationally
          • Sharing visions of a Good Society in Scotland from the perspective of post-industrial towns
          • Identifying the support required from the wider church, civil and civic society to make these visions real
          • Shifting the thinking about what constitutes 'the edge' and what a Good Society looks like from that perspective
