    It’s unfortunate that Mr Christopher Bain’s name has been mentioned in relation to the parliamentary expenses scandal. As a regular contributor to Cafod, I would hope that Mr Bain will make a statement about his apparent(indirect) involvement?

    It also emerges that Cafod receives public funding. Could we be told whether the Government attaches any conditions to this funding, please?

    Many thanks.

    • Dear Em,

      Take you for your enquiry about CAFOD work in the UK.

      The three key focuses of CAFOD work in the UK are fundraising, campaigning and education.

      CAFOD works with the Catholic community in England & Wales to raise both funds and awareness of global poverty and injustice through parishes, schools, and networks. Our network of offices co-ordinates this at a local level, working with thousands of volunteers and supporters whose support is vital to the impact and success of our work

      CAFOD’s key focuses of work in the UK:

      Raising funds
      Fundraising benefits CAFOD long-term development projects and programmes across Africa, Asia, the Middle East and South America. Our supporters and volunteers raise funds through Fast Days at Lent and Harvest, an Advent appeal and through long-term fundraising schemes such as Focus Africa . Money is also raised through legacies, emergency appeal donations and grants from the UK government and other bodies such as the European Union.

      Campaigning
      CAFOD campaigns for action and justice on vital issues such as climate change and the extraction of natural resources such as gold and nickel. We constantly keep up our pressure on the key decision makers by lobbying and campaigning at important occasions like the UN negotiations that will take place this December in Copenhagen. Thousands of people across the UK campaign with us to challenge the structures and policies that keep people poor. They do this by writing to MPs and government ministers, attending peaceful protests, lobbying governments and relevant international bodies such as the European Union, and making others in their communities aware of injustices that must be challenged if we are to ever overcome poverty.

      Education
      We provide resources and support to hundreds of schools and youth groups, helping them raise funds and awareness of development issues. Linking with the national curriculum, our work provides insight and ideas for action on a wide range of issues which help young people develop a sense of responsibility and global citizenship. We also work with diocesan networks and religious congregations, helping to reflect on global justice issues in the light of Catholic social teaching and gospel values

      We hope that this information addresses your question fully. For further information and to find out how you can get involved in CAFOD work you can visit our website: http://www.cafod.org.uk/

      With thanks and best wishes,
