Find out more about our staff, our sponsoring churches and the other organisations we work with.
We believe we can achieve even more when we team up with others, and so work alongside partners, donors and organisations to fight poverty and injustice.
As the official relief, development and advocacy agency of 41 sponsoring churches in Britain and Ireland, we work as part of a worldwide church community.
We carry out our relief, development and advocacy work through more than 700 local organisations, which are close to the people and communities we seek to help and so best understand their needs. We also work closely with governments and the private sector where appropriate.
We are a founding member of ACT Alliance, a coalition of 146 churches and faith-based organisations working together in more than 100 countries.
We regularly run projects on behalf of governmental and other major donors, including UK Aid and the European Commission, and are active members of 30 networks promoting excellence in the delivery of humanitarian and development programmes, including the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC), BOND, Dochas, Sphere, CONCORD and VOICE.
We have more than 70 years’ experience of working in partnership to support communities to thrive. We tackle the root causes of poverty so that women, men and children the world over are strengthened against future knocks. And if disasters happen, we get people the help they want straight away.
