English Cathedrals and Churches Sustainability and Funding Review

This Review was commissioned in April 2016, reporting to the Chancellor and Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport. The review's aim was to examine the funding and sustainability of listed Church of England buildings and ensure that they are conserved for future generations.

We welcome the publication of the English Cathedrals and Churches Sustainability and Funding Review and look forward to working closely with the Government on this important agenda. We support the recommendation of a pilot phase to explore the benefits of carefully targeted resources and look forward to working with DCMS to develop this further.

We are glad that the review recognises the extraordinary efforts of local congregations to keep their buildings repaired and open. This vital service to the wider community and willingness to share the church has kept these buildings alive for generations and will underpin their future.

You can download the full review and read the DCMS press release on the GOV.UK website.
