Bond has over 40 working groups with more than 3,000 members, each focusing on key thematic areas in the development and humanitarian sector. 

Join these communities of practice to discuss challenges, share resources and network with other professionals. Groups meet online at present. Some groups also undertake advocacy and influence policy-making.

Connect during Covid-19

As coronavirus (Covid-19) spreads worldwide, Bond’s working groups are continuing to convene online and share learning during this uncertain time. At Bond, we're supporting our group's convening, advocacy and information sharing. We have already seen great examples of groups mobilising: 

  • Our funding-related working groups are working to influence DFID to relax their funding policies so NGOs can respond quickly to emerging challenges. A weekly update will be posted through the funding-related groups to keep members updated with the weekly announcements.  
  • The Policy and Lobbying Group is exploring how organisations can find innovative ways to engage with political stakeholders. 
  • The UK WASH Network has convened virtual meetings to coordinate organisational responses and share learning relating to the virus.  They've also shared relevant materials from their organisations to help each other manage their responses to Covid-19.
  • The Small NGOs Group is sharing experiences and concerns around the instability and difficult decisions they face as organisations with already limited capacity.
