December 2014: Welcome to our new website. Join in, connect and collaborate today.


Collaborative community health

We are a growing and dynamic network, an emerging movement, a group of people determined to make a difference to the world’s most vulnerable communities.

We are people from many countries and backgrounds. We are motivated in different ways -- by faith in God, by humanitarian ideals or a love for people and the planet.

But we all want to bring about change – not by throwing lots of money and resources at problems, but by connecting people together; by celebrating gifts and skills which can help to transform our communities; by working together and developing deep trust; by agreeing about the barriers to health, wellbeing and happiness in our neighbourhoods; and together creating solutions to overcome them. Join us today.
