Shaping the future: Our strategy for research and innovation in humanitarian response.

A global organisation that finds solutions to complex humanitarian problems through research and innovation..
Our purpose is clear: we work in partnership with a global community of humanitarian actors, researchers and innovators to improve the quality of humanitarian action and deliver better outcomes for people affected by crises.
We empower the humanitarian community. Find out how we can support you...

Help us find solutions to some of the biggest humanitarian problems. Help us make lives better for those caught up in crises.

We have up to £1.5 million of funding for your next humanitarian innovation.

Finding out what works is central to everything we do. That’s why we’ve launched our biggest round of funding and support to date, with five new Innovation Challenges.

Our challenges have been created to address important gaps in humanitarian response. Through these Innovation Challenges we aim to answer questions like ‘What are the barriers people with disabilities and older people face in WASH and GBV programming?’ and ‘What could a menstrual hygiene management (MHM) friendly space look like?’
