Learning Hubs narrow the focus of enquiry about evidence for faith groups’ activities and contributions to wellbeing, development and humanitarian aid. Each Learning Hub are collaborations of expert stakeholders including practitioners, policy makers and academics and led by Co-Chairs drawn from those sectors.
Learning Hubs through shared learning:
- Review, map, and assess what is already known about the role and impact of faith groups on the health and well-being of local communities
- Work to effectively communicate existing evidence in ways that engage and inform key stakeholders;
- Work with policy makers and practitioners to identify gaps in knowledge and needs for evidence;
- Secure leadership and funding for focused research to fill those gaps;
- Communicate these findings to policy makers and practitioners to inform full and appropriate engagement of faith groups in local community health and development.
