Following the result of the Scottish referendum on independence, Christian Aid Scotland wishes to assure all its supporting churches and individuals that Christian Aid remains absolutely committed to the task of overcoming poverty, and to working with people of good faith everywhere to that end.
This mandate was given to us by the churches almost 70 years ago, and we will continue to work globally for profound change that eradicates the causes of poverty, striving to achieve equality, dignity and freedom for all, regardless of faith or nationality. We are part of a wider movement for social justice.
It has been encouraging in the weeks and months leading up to the referendum to note the strong emphasis on equality, justice and the desire to end poverty, not just in Scotland but across the world, that has characterised the debate on all sides.
Christian Aid will continue to do all it can to enable our supporters in Scotland to achieve these goals in an ongoing partnership for change.
