There is much that needs to be done to make the world a better place, and it is impossible for anyone to do it all by themselves.
We can make a bigger difference when we work together. That’s why we’re a part of coalitions and alliances that work to raise a collective voice on issues of poverty and injustice.
Find out about some of these partnerships below.
We are a member of the Australian Council for International Development (ACFID), the peak body for Australian aid and development agencies. ACFID was founded in 1965 and has more than 100 member agencies.
ACFID helps to provide a co-ordinated voice from the Australian aid agency sector on issues that affect the world’s poor, and contributes strongly to the Micah and Make Poverty History campaigns.
The ACT Alliance is a coalition of more than 140 churches and affiliated organisations working together in more than 100 countries to create positive and sustainable change in the lives of poor and marginalised people regardless of their religion, politics, gender, sexual orientation, race or nationality, and in keeping with the highest international codes and standards.
We often respond to disasters and emergencies through our membership of the ACT Alliance, but that’s not all that the ACT Alliance does.
Through advocacy the ACT Alliance seeks to influence decision makers, policies, structures and systems to bring about a just, peaceful and sustainable world. Advocacy priorities for the ACT Alliance include human rights issues, particularly for women and girls, and issues related to climate change and the environment.
The Anglican Alliance brings together those in the global Anglican family of churches and agencies to work for a world free of poverty and injustice, to be a voice for the voiceless, to reconcile those in conflict, and to safeguard the Earth. As part of its work, the Alliance draws Anglican agencies together to campaign on issues of human rights, climate and the environment, women’s issues and gender-based violence, tax justice, human trafficking and more.
