Our Christian ethos

Livability has a broad, generous and inclusive Christian ethos, welcoming people from all faiths and none
to work together towards the good of the whole community.

Our charity President is The Most Revd and Rt Hon Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury.

We believe…

  • We believe that every person is important and of equal worth. For all whom we serve, we are committed to supporting people as they pursue their purpose, live a flourishing life and enjoy complete participation in their community.

  • We work with local churches and other partners as agents of community change. Churches in the heart of a neighbourhood, motivated to spread the Good News of God’s kingdom, can have a massive impact on making a community livable.

  • Livability works with a range of churches, to help meet the needs of their community; partnerships that bring communities together and provide training and resources around issues of disability and social inclusion.

  • Livability also enjoys a range of strategic partnerships with Christian organisations, including Greenbelt, the Church Urban Fund, Premier, Mind and Soul, Alzheimers UK, Churches for All.

Livability's Basis of Faith

This is at the core of Livability and inspires our work and informs our values of quality, inclusion and justice.
