Accountable to you

Accountable governance is one of four focus areas in our fight against inequality, the root cause of poverty and injustice.

This also means that we work to ensure we are accountable to our supporters, donors and the public as well as the people and communities who our programmes serve. We are committed to stewarding the funds we receive responsibly and maximising their impact. We prioritise policies and procedures that safeguard the people we work with and strive to live according to our values.
