The William Temple Foundation


Shaping debate on religion in public life.

About The Foundation


The William Temple Foundation is a research and ideas hub, shaping debate on religion in public life.

We generate ideas about the impact of religion on civil society, wellbeing, politics and economics, and urban change.

Through these ideas we seek to:

  • Develop understanding of key social concerns through original research, publications and training.
  • Develop local and national networks to share experience, thinking and practice.
  • Develop practical changes for church, public policy and academia.
