RESULTS is a movement of passionate, committed, everyday people. Together they use their voices to influence political decisions that will bring an end to poverty.
Their campaigners receive training, support, and inspiration to become skilled advocates. In time, they learn to effectively advise policy makers, guiding them towards decisions that improve access to education, health, and economic opportunity.
Backed by the in-depth research and the political expertise of staff, RESULTS campaigners realise the incredible power they possess to use their voices to change the world.
How they work
At the heart of RESULTS are their campaigners — people from all walks of life who want to make a difference. They receive training, support, and inspiration to become skilled advocates, influencing the political decisions that will bring an end to poverty. Their campaigners speak and act powerfully within their communities, spending months, and often years, building relationships with their elected representatives and other decision makers.
Recognising the central role that governments play in allocating resources and setting policy to fight poverty, they work hard to build powerful, long-lasting relationships with MPs and peers in the Parliaments in the UK and Europe. They develop champions for their issues across all political parties, and influence decision-makers in the UK and internationally.
Advocacy without policy is like style without substance. Through their policy work they develop rigorous expertise on their issues, which allows us to engage in top-level policy discussions with civil servants both in the UK and in Europe, as well as those working for international organisations like the World Bank and United Nations agencies that are crucial in the global fight against poverty. They make sure all their grassroots and parliamentary work is informed by that same smart policy intelligence.
Combining these different approaches in a coordinated way makes the whole greater than the sum of the individual parts and drives them in realising their vision of a world free from extreme poverty by 2030.See more
