The Hope Charter
Nugent has joined Church leaders across Merseyside and beyond in backing a faith led campaign to put the protection of services to the vulnerable at the heart of the election campaign. The Hope Charter affirms social care as a basic human right and calls for the protection of services to the vulnerable.

Born out of conversations in Liverpool, The Hope Charter movement is gathering support across the country with church leaders pledging support for its aims and values. Organisers want this to be a grassroots movement that builds support for the charter’s five main principles.
- The protection and provision of services to the vulnerable as a key expression of who we are
- An affirmation of social care as a recognition of human dignity
- A declaration that regional or economic discrepancy in service provision to the vulnerable is unacceptable
- A call for a long term approach to funding and taxation placing human dignity above political expediency
- A call for steps to improve conditions for carers and care workers
Church leaders urge social care to be at the heart of the election campaign
