A world free from the fear of violence.
Working to this vision, our mission is to raise funds
to support communities around the world in reducing
their risk of violence
Communities affected by violence will be at the centre of all of our work, recognising that reducing violence requires action at all levels.
The causes of violence are deep rooted and manifold and there are rarely quick and easy solutions. Therefore we will develop long-term partnerships with those working to eliminate violence.
Much violence receives little media attention: we will actively seek out ‘forgotten’ areas of violence.
Our approach will be driven by need and specifically the risk that violence poses to people’s lives and well-being. Our work will be guided by the best available evidence of what works.
We will maintain our independence from government and from parties to conflict.
We will abide by the highest ethical standards.
