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!
