Christian Action, Research and Education (usually shortened to CARE) was established in 1971 as the Nationwide Festival of Light. According to the political scientist Martin Durham it emerged in the 1970s as ‘an evangelical campaigning organisation opposed to homosexuality, abortion and other manifestations of what was seen as the nation’s falling away from God’[1] In 1983, according to CARE itself, 'the Executive Committee took the decision to change the name of NFOL to CARE (Christian Action Research and Education)'[2]
