Oxfam GB

Oxfam is a global movement of people who share the belief that, in a world rich in resources, poverty isn't inevitable. It's an injustice which can, and must, be overcome.

We're dedicated to building a just and safer world focusing on people's basic rights. We're passionate about ending poverty and helping to rebuild the lives affected by it.

It's an enormous undertaking but we also have people on our side - talented and committed partners, volunteers, supporters and staff who share the same values.
