About Bond

Bond is the UK membership body for organisations working in international development or supporting those that do so through funding, research, training and other services. Our network is growing and we now have over 420 organisations in membership, and many thousands of individuals engaged with our network through special interest groups, international campaigns, events and conferences. 

The political and operating environment for our members has become increasingly complex and uncertain. Global forces are challenging the status quo, requiring our members to adapt and innovate in order to remain relevant. Building on the tools, services and examples co-produced with our network, we support better monitoring, evaluation, evidence use, learning, transparency and accountability. Bond has a long track record of helping our network to be a collective force for positive change, working with civil society organisations and other stakeholders to achieve development outcomes that affect the lives of the millions of people living in poverty.
