Emergency needs met


When disaster strikes, we respond swiftly and effectively to ensure we support communities in a strategic and focused way. We are committed to these communities for the long term, working through local churches and partners to help people become resilient and thrive.


Communities transformed


Where we can, we work through local churches to make sure transformation takes place in the very heart of the community. So, our support is localised and our work sustainable. We help communities build their resilience to shocks and stresses, work for peace and unity, and build better futures for themselves and others.


Churches mobilised


We’re excited when we see churches start to understand the potential God has placed in them to address poverty and injustice – and become powerful agents of change in their local community. We’re privileged to play a part in helping to equip and mobilise them.


Society changed


We call on people in positions of power and influence to ensure that their policies bring positive change for vulnerable communities, including those that are hardest to reach. We equip and empower communities to speak out and stand with them in holding governments to account and lobbying them to address structural inequalities and injustices.




Our supporters are a hugely important part of who we are and what we do. Honouring and building this relationship is a priority. We care passionately that our supporters feel valued and know that their gifts are having a life-changing impact.


Support & Running costs


Putting robust systems and processes in place to enable and evaluate our frontline work, so that we learn and improve and your money is used more effectively as a result.
