Who we are


We strive to make the world a more just and liveable place for disadvantaged people around the globe. We contribute to the eradication of poverty and distress through life-changing, long-term development and disaster relief.

Put simply, ADRA-UK improves the lives of people throughout the world. We search out and work to eliminate deprivation, social injustice, and help those in need. We work to create lasting solutions — empowering people to reach their potential.

ADRA-UK works in 5 key sectors to achieve this:

  1.     Food Security
  2.     Livelihoods
  3.     Health
  4.     Disaster Relief
  5.     Advocacy  

For those of you who are interested in volunteering the ADRA Fun Run serves as a great fundraising activity and BRAND new for this year, we have launched FREE Parachute Jumps across the UK for those of you who are adrenaline junkies.

For those of you who are interested in travelling abroad, our ADRA Connections trips offer people the chance of a lifetime!
