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.

Our new communities platform is coming

We’re working on a new and improved communities platform, which will replace the current online groups space in October 2021. After gathering your feedback, we’re developing a members' platform with a range of new benefits:

  • You’ll be able to follow posts and get notified about any updates
  • A choice of instant, daily or weekly email notifications
  • A chat function where you can chat to multiple users
  • Smarter categories for posts and a documents library
  • Easy setup of group events with Zoom details and calendar invites that integrate with your email
  • A better search function across the whole communities platform
