The Start Network is a global movement of individuals working in member agencies, as advisors and as contributors, aligned in their efforts to connect people in crises with the best possible solutions.

Assembly Members from international NGO families are drawn from the UK branches of those families, and are responsible for communicating with and engaging their international counterparts.
