engaGE17 is an initiative from Christian Public Policy charity CARE to promote active engagement in the General Election. It provides a range of resources to enable Christian thinking about important issues and voter participation.
CARE seeks to uphold human dignity and to support the most vulnerable people in society, engaging with politicians in the UK Parliaments & Assemblies in its advocacy work. Supported by individuals and churches throughout the UK, CARE encourages Christians to be informed and to engage positively in public life; addressing issues relating to the sanctity of life, human exploitation, marriage and family and many other areas of advocacy.

Vision: to see a society that has a greater regard for human dignity and increasingly reflects God’s grace and truth through public policy, media and local practical involvement with vulnerable people.
Purpose: to be engaged in the UK Parliaments & Assemblies and to equip individual Christians and the churches to act as effective ‘light and salt’ in the local community and nationally.
