IBEX works to encourage and challenge Churches to make a difference in their local communities.
This is about identifying and addressing issues in your own neighbourhood. We aim to encourage, challenge, enable and support you.
We are, therefore, aiming to identify a number of types of scheme and provide “how to’s”.
The answers will not be definitive, because different neighbourhoods will require their own distinctive solutions. They will be guidelines or pointers to further sources of advice. You will not normally need to reinvent the wheel because we intend to share best practice.
If you have a problem, someone else may well have already encountered and dealt with it.
Finally, if there is anything you think could be a useful addition to this, or anything not included here, even if you have no expertise about it whatsoever, do contact us
