Christian Aid Open Information Policy

Our Open Information Policy governs our approach to sharing information with external stakeholders; it provides the standards and principles that guide how we operate and the types of mechanisms that exist to access information. It also explains why there is some information that we will not share. To learn more, visit our Open Information Policy page. 

Resilience framework

Our Resilience Framework sets out how we work with partners to support communities to identify the risks they face, access resources and effectively to achieve sustainable results.

Resilience case studies

The following nine case studies illustrate how we interpret resilience – as a means of putting communities and individuals at the centre of their own development.

Comment Christian Aid évalue le rapport qualité-prix dans ses programmes

Pour Christian Aid, un bon rapport qualité-prix ne consiste pas à rechercher la solution la moins coûteuse possible, à moins qu’elle soit également la plus efficace et la plus inclusive. (French language value for money report.)

Improving Impact: Do accountability mechanisms deliver results?

This research seeks to contribute evidence for the value of introducing accountability mechanisms into projects, and demonstrate the importance of promoting them.

Christian Aid accountability framework

Christian Aid’s Essential Purpose is to expose the scandal of poverty, to help in practical ways to root it out from the world, and to challenge and change the systems that favour the rich and powerful over the poor and marginalised. We are an agency of 41 churches in Britain and Ireland and are mandated to work on relief, development and advocacy for poverty eradication. We work with and through partners overseas:  churches, ecumenical bodies, local NGOs and movements who have common values and who we recognise to be in the best position to identify and deliver support and assistance to the communities that they work with.  Accountability is vital to upholding our Christian based values and for maintaining our legitimacy and credibility to speak out so that it fully supports our Essential Purpose. We aim to hold ourselves openly responsible, in ways that involve our key stakeholders, for what we believe, what we do and say we will do – and for showing what we have done compared to what we said we would do. Doing this enables us to get feedback on what works and what doesn’t, and what we need to improve. This increases the likelihood of success in our work with poor communities and enhances a sense of ownership among all our stakeholders. It also reduces the potential for inefficient use or misuse of the resources entrusted to us. 

How Christian Aid assesses value for money in its programmes

Christian Aid is committed to seeing an end to poverty. In order to achieve this, we need to focus on attaining results for women and men living in poverty. To maximise our impact and bring about changes at the scale to which we aspire, we need to focus on using our resources as effectively as we possibly can – literally, achieving the best value for money (VfM). While we need to manage financial and other resources sensibly and efficiently, what really matters is using them to bring about as significant a change as possible for poor and marginalised women and men.  Further resources:  Value for money (French) Value for money (Spanish) Value for money case studies

Value for money and advocacy case studies

Advocacy is how Christian Aid and its partners work to try to influence leaders, governments and other bodies to consider the views and needs of poor people.
