For over fifty years we have been committed to healthy, thriving, collaborative relationships

Support us as we develop and equip local organisations and those in authority to come together, resolve differences, and lay down the foundations for a world where everyone can live in the fullness of peace, having the freedom to flourish and live free from fear

All relationships have their difficulties, right? 
But what would happen if the relationships you took for granted suddenly failed?

When relationships break down between people and those holding power then people’s rights are ignored, the likelihood of conflict increases and poverty is prolonged.

That’s why Cord promotes the power of peaceful relationships.

The power to transform mistrust into trust;

to include the excluded;

to replace fear with confidence;

to transform adversaries into allies.
