Taylor Review published

The Taylor Review into the sustainability of Church of England churches has been published and is accessible via the link below.

Among the key recommendations, it proposes creating a national structured framework of Community Support Advisers to assist parishes in finding community uses for churches (and income from them); and Fabric Support Officers to provide expert advice on buildings maintenance, with whose support all parishes would prepare a 10 year rolling programme of major repairs and an on-going plan of minor repairs. The report proposes a government-funded pilot scheme to test out the full range of recommendations.

The report is clear about the continuing need for on-going government funding, while seeking ways to increase local funding as well.
