The British Council enables people to make positive changes based on shared values and interests. We support non-governmental organisations, networks of organisations and community leaders to collaborate locally and internationally towards more inclusive, open and stable societies.
Strengthening voice and accountability
We support all citizens to participate in and influence decisions and policies that affect their lives. We help build the capacity of civil society organisations to monitor and promote improved public services.
Influencing policy and social change
We support non-governmental organisations, social movements and citizens to make a valuable contribution to the development of society by working together in partnerships and coalitions with government and the private sector.
Promoting empowerment, social inclusion and equality
We work with partners from civil society and government to empower disadvantaged groups, support equal access to services and encourage inclusivity and equality in policy development.
