Bond is the UK network for organisations working in international development.

We strengthen and champion the sector to make international development more efficient and effective. We work to influence governments and policy-makers, develop the skills of people in the sector, share expertise, and build organisational capacity and partnerships.

What we do
Connect – we unite over 400 diverse civil society organisations to share expertise and work collaboratively for greater impact. Our events and training, groups and online platform give members the chance to share learning and develop their skills.

Influence – we bring together our members and wider UK civil society to collectively influence the policies and practice of governments and institutions at the UK, European and international level. Our key advocacy areas include aid, SDGs, Brexit and civil society’s operating environment.

Strengthen – We deliver a range of services to help organisations be more effective and improve the quality and impact of their work. We provide support and resources in areas like funding, transparency, and monitoring, evaluation and learning (MEL).
