What we do:

  • We support local Christian Aid committees – particularly in the run-up to their biggest annual fundraising efforts in Christian Aid Week each May.
  • We preach or speak about Christian Aid’s work to groups, in schools and in churches.
  • We recruit and support volunteers including campaigners and Christian Aid teachers.
  • We organise events and host visitors to Wales from our overseas partner organisations.

Our Welsh identity

We strive to ensure a Welsh identity and a rootedness in Wales. This is reflected in the fact that we work, as far as possible, as a bilingual organisation.

We offer a wide range of worship, educational and campaigning resources in both Welsh and English.

Welsh funding and policy

We engage with the National Assembly for Wales - a devolved administration with a wide range of executive responsibilities for implementing domestic policy in Wales - through the Wales Overseas Agencies Group (WOAG) and the All Party Group on International Development (APGID).

The Government of Wales Act 2006 has given the assembly new powers and opened up the possibility of Welsh funding for international work to tackle poverty. The assembly is also formulating its own policy to address climate change issues in Wales.
