With more than 17 years of experience of working in partnership we know the value and impact that comes from collaboration.

This is collaboration in its broadest sense.

As independent organisations with a broad range of expertise there is a lot that we can learn from each other and we do this through workshops, trainings and network meetings. We are also explore the efficiencies to be gained through forming project consortia and joint fundraising.

Through the working structures we identify areas of common work around our 3 core objectives: sharing knowledge, mobilising resources and influencing change.

The current working structures are institutional funding, security, finance, communications/private fundraising, training & learning and advocacy.
