Our staff work directly with communities affected by conflict and disaster, enabling us to create programmes that work for them.
By training community leaders the impact of our staff's work is extended across whole populations.
IRC staff are trained to understand the needs of individuals in challenging situations and to communicate with them effectively.
Our staff bring a range of technical skills - from water and sanitation to construction - to communities that need them most.
In the UK, the International Rescue Committee is governed by a board of trustees who have volunteered their time to support us in our mission to help people affected by natural disaster and conflict.
