Schools, parishes or any other organisations wishing to deliver the Faith in Action Award should first register with their Awarding Authority (usually a diocese) as a Participating Organisation. The registration process for each Awarding Authority will be slightly different. From there, your Awarding Authority will support you and offer training in running the Faith in Action Award.

Once registered, your Awarding Authority will provide you will a login for the Faith in Action Award website members' area. To maintain the integrity of the Faith in Action Award, the members' area is only available to registered Awarding Authorities and Participating Organisations who have agreed to the terms and conditions of the Faith in Action Award. Once registered and approved, Award Leaders will have access to downloadable resources that support the running of the award.

You'll find details of registered Awarding Authorities below.
