We're making some changes!
Our new site will include our new member of the month scheme, as well as some more info about our Global Food Futures Year! Please come and see our new look website on 10th September!
What we do
The Humanitarian Centre’s aim is to identify and solve problems that tackle the root causes of poverty and inequality and to alleviate their enduring symptoms. We do this in partnership with one another, by creating the space and conditions that allow us to listen and learn especially from our partners in communities and countries where poverty and inequality are most devastating. This approach enables us to take bold but thoughtful steps forward and to generate real solutions that make a tangible difference to communities worldwide.
The Centre supports over 45 member organisations, through training and networking (for example, in marketing, volunteer management and monitoring and evaluation). Find out more!
Transitions at the Humanitarian Centre
Our current Director, Sonia Roschnik, will be leaving her post as Director to take an unmissable opportunity with the Sustainable Development Unit for the health sector. We’re not losing her entirely though, as she will continue to support the Humanitarian Centre as an advisor to the Board of Trustees.
The deadline for applications to be the Humanitarian Centre’s new Director has now passed.

We hope that you’re all having a wonderful summer.
Thanks to everyone who supported our first Blue Dot fundraiser, Anne’s challenging pub quiz!
