How your donation will help

The Accord Coalition is able to achieve a lot on a small budget, but only thanks to the goodwill and commitment of its member groups and supporters, on which it is entirely dependent. In order to continue and expand the work we do it is vital that those who support our aims also support our work by making a donation.

Since its launch, the Accord Coalition has:

  • Met with MPs and peers from all mainstream political parties, including Ministers and Shadow Ministers,
  • Produced high quality briefings to inform parliamentary debates and Bills, including:
    • getting a fairer deal for teachers in Equality Act (2010)
    • defending pupils from faith based homophobia in the Children, Schools and Families Act (2010)
    • defended Ofsted’s requirement to inspect upon how school’s promote community cohesion in the Education Act (2011)Administered the annual Accord Inclusivity Award for schools, to highlight and spread good practice
  • Responded to numerous government consultations on issues such as how local schools are reorganised and the reform of RE, collective worship and Sex and Relationships Education
  • Provided spokespeople, who frequently appear in the media, moving debate about the role of religion in education away from divisive stereotypes onto how state funded schools should operate in practice
  • Welcomed a growing number of members and supporters, growing the organisation’s voice further
  • Used evidence from those discriminated against to show the need for reform and reported potential breaches of equality law to the Equalities and Human Rights Commission
  • Attended and held fringe events at Labour, Conservative and Lib Dem Party conferences, teacher union conferences and meetings of the Church of England General Synod
  • Analysed and collated research evidence on the way that faith schools operate, helping to lead the public debate

Ways to donate

The best way to donate to Accord is by setting up a standing order. A regular gift, if only a few pounds per month, is more useful than a one off donation as it means we can plan ahead better, with a clearer idea of what income to expect. The standing order form is easy to download, print off and fill in:
