Advocacy

At Mercy Corps, we work with governments, institutions, local leaders, civil society organisations, foundations and businesses around the world to ensure that the voices of the people we work with are heard, and that they get the support they need to strengthen their communities from within.

Our teams and partners advocate for good policies and best practices so our programmes make a wider impact, create lasting change and function effectively and efficiently.

We rely on your voice, too. With your help, we can ensure that everyone is aware of some of these critical issues, from your friends to your members of Government.

To find out more about our advocacy work, policy briefs, or if you have a speaker request, please get in touch with the Policy & Advocacy team on policy-europe@mercycorps.org.
