About the Organisation
About Act for Peace
Act for Peace was founded in 1948 by the National Council of Churches in Australia (NCCA). Our vision is for a peaceful world where all people share a safe, just and dignified life. Our purpose is to empower passionate people to work together to achieve safety, justice and dignity in communities threatened by conflict, displacement and disaster.
This is achieved through working with local partners to deliver lasting change by supporting a range of humanitarian and development initiatives including program implementation, organisational development and advocacy. Our overseas work assists partners working with communities in or from Syria, Palestine, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, the Philippines, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Indonesia, Tonga and Vanuatu. In Australia, our focus is on supporting refugee initiatives.
Act for Peace is a member of the global ACT Alliance, which provides development and humanitarian assistance in more than 140 countries, enabling us to respond immediately to emergency situations and to advocate with strong global voice.

OUR VISION: A peaceful world where all people share a safe, just and dignified life.
OUR PURPOSE: We empower passionate people to work together to achieve safety, justice and dignity in communities threatened by conflict and disaster.
HOW WE WORK:
When an emergency occurs, we respond fast to give people what they need most to survive. We’re in for the long-haul too, supporting communities in protracted crises until they’re able to get back on their feet. We also work with communities at risk to prepare in advance, which saves lives when disaster strikes.
ADVOCACY AND CAMPAIGNS
We work with others to mobilise governments and decision-makers to tackle the root causes of poverty and injustice, not just treat the symptoms. When we come together to speak with one voice, it sends a clear message that people in power can’t ignore.
Lasting change takes time. Your support enables sustainable development projects that help communities to tackle their own problems -whether that’s giving girls a brighter future through education, helping farmers grow enough to eat or supporting refugees to return home safely after a conflict has ended.
WORKING THROUGH PARTNERS
We believe local people are best placed to identify the problems faced by their communities and create solutions that work. So we partner with local organisations on the ground to achieve change. We’re part of the ACT Alliance, a global network of 140 organisations across 100 countries working together to share knowledge and resources, speak with a louder voice, and ultimately, achieve more impact.
