Ethical Thinking

Mothers’ Union calls this Social Policy – but what is it?

We engage in Social Policy activities to try to achieve positive change and improvement in the lives of families in the UK and around the world. This is Christian social responsibility following the two fundamental issues in scripture of stewardship and caring for others which promote our ethical thinking.
