We want to see communities transformed
We’re passionate about seeing the needs and opinions of the world’s most vulnerable people brought to the table so that decision-makers can hear and act upon them. So we equip and support communities to make their case. We use advocacy and influence – with the church, government and the private sector – to bring poverty and injustice to light and to demand change. We influence decision-makers directly and help our partners to do the same.
At the same time, we inspire Christians in the UK and globally to campaign, pray and live out the change they want to see more widely. Renew Our World, the international advocacy movement we helped to establish, now has expressions in 20 countries and counting, contributing to national and global action.
This year, we launched our Reboot campaign, to encourage Christians and church leaders to ask the UK government for a green and fair recovery from the pandemic, consistent with international climate obligations. This has led to faith leaders calling for international debt cancellation. We also encouraged and equipped churches in at least 25 countries to call on governments to meet the needs of communities that have been worst affected by the pandemic in a green and fair way. This resulted in policy wins in countries such as Brazil, Malawi, Nigeria and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
