Our campaigns

Our campaigns

We are dedicated to shining a light on issues that affect the world's poorest people. Using our experience on the ground, we push for changes that will improve the lives of the people we work with. By tackling the root causes of poverty, we aim to achieve lasting change.

Concern supporters are an essential part of this. By using your voice, you help get our messages through to decision makers and push development issues up the political agenda.

Campaigning works. Over the last 20 years, significant progress has been made in reducing hunger levels around the world.

Nearly half of all child deaths worldwide are linked to malnutrition. But when a child gets regular, nutritious food, it changes everything.

Our supporters have been calling for the UK to continue its vital commitments to nutrition programmes that help prevent and treat child malnutrition.

We saw MPs and supporters tweet on World Food Day. We had parliamentary debates and media coverage. And 17,500 of you signed a petition, which we handed in alongside Action Against Hunger and Results UK.

Watch our hand-in video below.

Minister Wendy Morton responded to our petition, which you can read here.

We are still pushing for the UK to make a commitment to nutrition at this year’s Nutrition for Growth Summit in December.

Working with other charities in the International Coalition for Advocacy on Nutrition (ICAN) UK, we have produced a report outlining what we want to see from the UK at the summit. Now we are campaigning with supporters and MPs to ensure the government listens.
