Who can Authors and Editors Consult?

 Who can authors and editors consult?

It is not always easy to find people who represent the diversity found within any worldview and who understand what pupils and teachers need, and there is a wide range of organisations within different faith groups. The list that follows is of member-organisations of the REC that may be willing to offer authoritative advice and fact-checking. These organisations represent, or can find, members from the diverse elements within their communities, and many of them have education officers or departments that understand the requirements of schools. They should be able to provide assistance, accurate information, quotable literature, and readers. Some of these organisations may charge a fee to cover their costs.
