We want to ensure that our partners – often the first responders in a crisis – can do what they need to do quickly and effectively, without limitations. Our partners tell us time and again about the value of funding that they can use however they see fit, not limited to a particular activity or area. In fact, one partner told us that they would much rather have £10,000 in unrestricted funding to work with than £100,000 in restricted funding.
Our funding model allows us to get emergency funding to local organisations in a matter of days.
In times of crisis – whether a sudden resurgence of violent attacks, or a natural disaster – we have been able to provide rapid emergency funds to our partners. These funds have enabled them to meet their own needs and support their communities until they can resume their peacebuilding efforts.
