We strengthen NGOs and charities to be more effective and sustainable through our support services, tools and expertise.

We help civil society organisations of all sizes adapt to new challenges by ensuring they are agile and resilient. Our support services have been designed in response to NGOs' needs in an ever-changing, complex environment. We focus on core areas like funding, safeguarding, advocacy, transparency, and monitoring and evaluation.

Our tools, insights and support equip organisations to be more agile, demonstrate their impact and become financially sustainable. We also develop the skills of people in the sector through our events and training.

Our resource library offers useful reports, toolkits, research, how-to-guides, briefings, case studies and more for people working in international development and humanitarian assistance. As well as Bond’s own publications and guides, we link to other useful resources for charities and NGOs.
