Core Humanitarian Standards
Work progressed throughout 2017 to facilitate our membership of the global Core Humanitarian Standards (CHS) Alliance. We became full members of the alliance in January 2018 - a welcome development which demonstrates our commitment to upholding the quality of our work and being accountable to our beneficiaries.
The Core Humanitarian Standard on Quality and Accountability sets out nine commitments that humanitarian organisations can adopt to improve the quality and effectiveness of the assistance they provide. This standard facilitates increased accountability to our beneficiaries and outlines the essential elements of principled, accountable and high-quality humanitarian action.
War Child will continue to systematically review and improve our adherence to the commitments of the CHS alliance. This will help ensure our work with affected populations has the highest quality and impact.
