Christian Aid Scotland supports individuals, partners and churches to stamp out the global scandal of poverty.
We believe that poverty is an outrage against humanity. It robs people of dignity, freedom and hope, of power over their own lives.
Through our international, humanitarian and advocacy work we tackle both its effects and root causes.
We inspire people of all faiths and none to challenge the root causes of poverty through fundraising, campaigning and awareness raising.
We speak about Christian Aid’s work in churches, schools and youth groups. We support volunteers and campaigners to take action against injustice. We organise events and host visitors from our partner organisations.
We work in close partnership with the Scottish Government, consulting on their climate change policies and advising on their overseas development work.
We cannot reach our vision of an end to poverty alone. We are delighted to work in creative partnership with some of Scotland’s most passionately engaged advocacy organisations.
