Ongoing action is being taken to safeguard better the people we support and staff from abuse, exploitation and sexual harassment of any kind. We take the issues of safeguarding extremely seriously and have worked to provide a safe and trusted environment for all those connected to us, for a number of years.
On 8 October 2018, the IPCC will publish its long awaited report on limiting climate change to 1.5ºC.

Conflict and natural disasters devastate lives. All too often it’s the lives of the world’s poorest people. You’ll help us and our partners around the world to deliver and ultimately save lives and reduce human suffering.
More than half the world lives in poverty. We aim to put a stop to that. So we campaign against the inequalities that keep people poor and we work with local organisations to give people strength to find their own solutions to the problems they face, irrespective of their religion. If you are as determined as we are to end poverty and injustice across the world, work with us to make change happen.
