Chance for Childhood wins the Bond Collaboration Award

Collaboration Award

The Collaboration Award recognises the importance of effective relationships and collaborations, within and across sectors and disciplines, in finding new opportunities to tackle difficult issues.

We are experiencing a move away from traditional NGO/donor links and "aid chains" to relationships across sectors and disciplines. This award focuses on emerging collaborations to highlight what is working and what is possible. It encourages stories of successful projects that demonstrate effective and even unexpected collaborations.


Chance for Childhood

Chance for Childhood's Right2Change project has encouraged more mainstream services, like KATI’s youth enterprise schemes, to include young offenders in their client group.


This year’s finalists are organisations that have successfully worked in partnership on a project with an unusual mix of organisations and individuals.

British Council - Pyoe Pin

In January 2016 the Myanmar parliament passed the country’s first ever Legal Aid Law, the culmination of a four-year collaborative process initiated and supported by the British Council's Pyoe Pin programme.

Institute of Development Studies

In 2014 networks of anthropologists in West Africa, Europe and the United States collaborated with researchers in Sierra Leone to deliver real-time advice and support on ebola.
