Join a Bond group to maximise expertise and share best practice with other professionals in the development sector.

Our over 40 member-led working groups bring together professionals to take joint action and share learning on policy and practice areas. Some of these communities of practice formulate collective policy responses on key issues, and influence governmental and institutional decision-making at national and global levels.

Groups cover a diverse range of areas, including funding, project management, aid policy, lobbying, fundraising, communications, transparency, conflict and disasters.

You can access all groups by logging in, if you aren't already. Your organisation must be a Bond member to access our groups.
