We thank all of the donors who kindly support us, and who make our work possible. We receive generous funding from a range of supporters, including individuals, charitable trusts and foundations, and institutional donors. This enables us to work with those who are most affected by conflict and violence to help achieve lasting change. 

Where our money goes

We work with our partners to address global and local issues and to reduce the impact of violent conflict on communities around the world.

Programmes: we work with partners in Asia, Africa and the Middle East to support people to prevent violent conflict and build lasting peace.

Global policy and advocacy: we push for commitments that change the direction of national, regional and global policy and create conditions for lasting peace.

Core: our core costs cover the essentials that make our work possible – from paying the office rent to ensuring strong governance, effective communications, project learning and investments that help us strengthen the impact of our work.
