CARE (Christian Action Research and Education) is a Christian charity seeking to uphold human dignity and to support the most vulnerable people in society, engaging with politicians in the UK Parliaments & Assemblies and promoting Christian community-based initiatives. We believe that marriage and family life is the bedrock of society. We seek to promote greater awareness of the benefits of marriage for individuals, families and society at large. We work to see policies and laws implemented that support marriage and family life.
