This chapter uses interview data with faith-motivated volunteers to question the role faith plays in their participation of voluntary care work. Qualitative data reveals religious groups are social networks, through which the validity of faith-based works can be taught and maintained. At a local level, the connection between FBOs and religious networks is important and one, the authors argue, can form a kind of ethical citizenship.
