BRAC UK
Organisation

Founded in Bangladesh and now working in eleven countries, we are by some measures the largest non-governmental organisation in the world, an innovator in poverty eradication and a social enterprise offering sustainable pathways out of poverty. Demonstrating the power of a holistic, community-based approach and best known for the scale of our programmes we have created opportunities for 135 million people, mostly women, to create lasting change.

Poor communities are crucial actors and change makers in development and not passive recipients of aid. Working together we design programmes that promote social inclusion through microfinance, education, healthcare, agriculture, livelihood support, legal aid services, community empowerment and profit making social enterprises which feedback into development and take a triple bottom line approach.

BRAC UK works as part of the international BRAC family to raise awareness and funds for our low cost, high impact approach. Developing partnerships in Europe with non-governmental organisations, academics, research institutes, the private sector and governments.

Stonewall
Organisation

Stonewall is here to let all lesbian, gay, bi and trans people, here and abroad, know they're not alone.  We believe we're stronger united, so we partner with organisations that help us create real change for the better.  We have laid deep foundations across Britain - in some of our greatest institutions - so our communities can continue to find ways to flourish, and individuals can reach their full potential.   Stonewall works with individuals through a series personal and professional development programmes that enable people to connect with and influence others to challenge homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying. Through our Diversity Champions, we work with over 750 members across the public, private and third sectors to help them create inclusive and accepting environments for almost a quarter of the UK workforce. We campaign, lobby and fundraise to enable LGBT people to be themselves, whoever and wherever they are.
