SCIAF works in partnership with local and church organisations, supporting communities across Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East, to bring about lasting change. We reach out to those in need, regardless of age, race or religion and believe in supporting the whole person, including their spiritual wellbeing, political voice, cultural and community life.


SCIAF undertakes safeguarding measures to ensure that all staff, volunteers and relevant others, whose work might involve contact with children and/or vulnerable adults, will have completed additional recruitment procedures and have PVG scheme membership.
