We are Elrha, a force for change in the humanitarian community. The research and innovation we support equips the humanitarian community with the knowledge of what works, so people affected by crises get the right help when they need it most.
Our purpose is clear: to empower the humanitarian community to improve humanitarian response. We make this happen by supporting and championing the outcomes of robust research and proven innovations.

The safety and wellbeing of those we work with is of paramount importance to us. This includes staff, governance groups, grantees and the people our grantees work with. We have a zero-tolerance approach towards all forms of unethical behaviour. Please read our Incident Prevention Policy for more information.
Our promise to Whistleblowers
A whistleblower is anyone who reports a suspicion of an incident to us.
Our policy is to treat all reports of incidents with the utmost seriousness and will respond to reports as soon as it is practicable to do so. This is normally within two working days of receiving a concern.
We will protect the confidentiality of whistleblowers and prevent them from harm or detriment as a result of their report, as much as it is in our power to do so.
Any concerns or issues can be reported anonymously. We will respect your anonymity as best we can. However, any investigations may be at a disadvantage if we are unable to contact you to discuss your concerns.
We will acknowledge your report and may also request further information if an investigation is appropriate. We cannot state how long any investigation may take as this will be determined by the context of the incident, but we will keep you informed of progress as much as we are able to do so.
During the course of any investigation, it may not be possible to keep details entirely confidential as we have legal duties to inform our donors and regulatory agencies in some cases. When this occurs we will inform you in advance, where we are allowed to do so, and work with you to prevent any harm or detriment.
During any investigation it may not be possible to share all details that the investigation uncovers, however, we will keep you informed of progress as much as we can.
Once any investigation is complete, we will inform you of the result of and any resulting actions. If you are not content, we will explain how to appeal and how to escalate to any relevant regulatory body.
Please report any incidents to us immediately: email@example.com
