We believe all people are created equal, and we should love our neighbours as ourselves. Yet, right now, we’re living in a world of ‘us’ and ‘them’. Divisions are deepening, conflicts are escalating, and climate inaction is placing lives in peril.

It means every day, more of us around the world are forced from our homes by violent conflict and disaster.

For more than 70 years, Act for Peace has brought people together to respond to this injustice. Meeting urgent needs, advocating for change and backing displaced people to reclaim control of their lives.

Founded by the Australian churches, we are a diverse collection of people united by a powerful conviction: to create a just and peaceful society, we must work together. It’s both the right thing to do, and the only thing that will work.

That’s why we work in solidarity with long-term local partners; and collaborate with local, regional and global networks, academics, governments and the UN; to ensure people uprooted by conflict and disaster have a safe place to belong.

Our Vison

A world where everyone belongs.

Our Purpose

To create, together, a world where people uprooted by conflict and disaster have a safe place to belong.
