Working from the ground up
We believe local people are best placed to identify the problems faced by their communities and create solutions that work. So we partner with local organisations on the ground to achieve change. We’re also part of the ACT Alliance, a global network of 140 likeminded organisations across 130 countries working together to share knowledge and resources, speak with a louder voice, and ultimately, achieve more impact.
Richard Wainwright/Act for Peace
The ACT Alliance is one of the world's largest and most effective networks of grassroots aid organisations and workers. By working closely with ACT Alliance's local partners, Act for Peace is able to respond immediately to emergency situations, wherever and whenever they hit. What's more, we can support those communities most at risk from conflict and natural disasters, by helping them to prepare and adapt.

“Our approach to partnership is to build a genuine two-way relationship. Rather than coming in with an agenda, we trust the local organisations we work with to identify priority needs and deliver programs that take account of local sensitivities.”
– Janet Cousens, Interim Executive Director
