Social Care & Support

During the Middle Ages, support for the poor was provided in much of Europe through Christian charity. The main formal organisations were the Church and the monasteries. Jesus called on followers to worship God, act without violence or prejudice and care for the sick, hungry and poor.

Such teachings are the foundation of Christian involvement in social justice, hospitals and health care. As such the Church continues to provide social help through education and specialist care homes and help for the poor through charities such as Christian Aid.

Whole Person Health Network aims to link organisations together so that they can reach out to the vulnerable people in their communities and provide the right care through the right organisation.

Philippians 4:8
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
