Q. How can we help the most vulnerable in our society?
“This is a task for all of us. As individuals we must be aware of situations where we can help and do so. Through organisations that we are part of or can influence we must make sure that disability rights are embedded and that disability policies are transparent and are genuinely empowring for individuals.”
Q. Can religion help?
“As a committed Christian I believe that religious organisations have a significant part to play in helping the most vulnerable in society. There are many organisations that have a strong existing presence in this work, such as Christian Aid and the Salvation Army. This work should be in addition to adequate state and local authority provision, not instead of it.”
