Our work is carried out by proven and trusted partner NGOs with in-depth knowledge of the communities which they serve. In many cases, we have worked with these organisations for many years. While our funds are small, we are able to take calculated long-term risks that may not be possible for other, larger organisations. We are keen to fund small projects that make a lasting difference or to provide seed funding to demonstrate effectiveness so our partners can secure bigger grants to extend a scheme nationwide.
UNHCR has now funded two large projects, initially piloted with backing from Avonbrook. As a result, we can claim that Avonbrook makes substantial, lasting change with a relatively small investment in our trusted partners.
