About the Reimagining Care Commission

The origin of the Archbishops’ Commission lies in Archbishop Justin’s 2018 book ‘Reimagining Britain: Foundations for Hope’.

The Reimagining Care Commission has been set up by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York to develop a radical and inspiring vision, drawing on Christian theology and tradition, that reimagines care and support. The Commission developed out of a chapter on Health in Archbishop Justin’s book, ‘Reimagining Britain: Foundations for Hope’, where he highlighted that caring equally for the health of all, regardless of perceived economic or societal value, is a clear sign of our values.

The Commission aims to articulate the enduring values and principles which should underpin care and caring. It aims to support the work of churches in communities and contribute to the national debate on the purpose of care and support and inform how care is provided in future, by identifying practical ideas, informed by extensive listening, and gathering of examples of good practice.

The Commission comprises ten members, each bringing specific expertise and experience in this area. It is chaired by Dr Anna Dixon MBE, and Co-Chaired by the Rt Revd James Newcome, Bishop of Carlisle. The group welcomes contributions to its thinking from as broad a range of individuals and organisations as possible including all church traditions and other faith communities.
