We cannot achieve our mission in isolation, and we place partnership at the heart of what we do.

We define partnership as a mutually beneficial and interactive relationship between two or more organisations.  A partnership is built for a specific purpose and works towards a shared goal of positive and sustainable impact.  Partnership allows us to combine our resources and expertise with our partners’, meaning that we can work more effectively – and achieve more – than we would if working individually.  By building partnerships, we are able to increase, develop and broaden our impact and progress towards our mission.

A partner is an organisation we work with for a specific purpose and impact.  Through working together, they help us achieve our mission, as we help them achieve theirs.  We share values.  We share skills, knowledge and expertise.

Here are some partners we regularly work with and networks where we are an active member.
