COMMENT: Plan International UK responds to DfID's Civil Society Partnership Review
Tanya Barron, Chief Executive at Plan International UK, says: “We welcome today’s review and the government’s clear recognition that NGOs are critical partners in alleviating global poverty.
“Simplifying access to DFID funding will ensure even more money reaches those who need it most, something Plan International strives to achieve.
“We have been pioneering innovative partnerships for decades across the private, public and NGO sectors and particularly welcome the government’s increased support for them.
“It is through this collaborative approach that we are tackling the challenges faced by vulnerable people across the world – especially girls and young people – to whom we are all ultimately accountable. “
