Short description:
The member organisations collectively represent tens of thousands of community organisations which work directly at the grass-roots with people in poverty, hardship or distress. Almost all of them are independent organisations working in their own communities rather than branches of organisations based in other countries. Many have been established by people who are themselves experiencing hardship.
Within their own communities, the network of organisations provides help for a wide range of people who are poor, ill, disabled, unemployed, frail or oppressed.
