At the heart of RESULTS are our campaigners — people from all walks of life who want to make a difference. They receive training, support, and inspiration to become skilled advocates, influencing the political decisions that will bring an end to poverty. Our campaigners speak and act powerfully within their communities, spending months, and often years, building relationships with their elected representatives and other decision makers.
Recognising the central role that governments play in allocating resources and setting policy to fight poverty, we work hard to build powerful, long-lasting relationships with MPs and peers in the Parliaments in the UK and Europe. We develop champions for our issues across all political parties, influencing, influencing other decision-makers in the UK and internationally.
Advocacy without policy is like style without substance. Through our policy work we develop rigorous expertise on our issues, which allows us to engage in top-level policy discussions with civil servants both in the UK and in Europe, as well as those working for international organisations like the World Bank and United Nations agencies that are crucial in the global fight against poverty. We make sure all our grassroots and parliamentary work is informed by that same smart policy intelligence.
Combining these different approaches in a coordinated way makes the whole greater than the sum of the individual parts and drives us in realising our vision of a world free from extreme poverty by 2030.
