Scottish Catholic International Aid Fund (SCIAF)

(Associate) SCIAF is the official overseas aid and development charity of the Catholic Church in Scotland. Last year SCIAF provided long term development support and emergency help to more than 220,000 people in 27 countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East. We work in Scotland providing development education programmes within schools, parishes and community groups, developing policy responses to issues of global poverty, and advocating for change at the global and national level. Inspired by the leadership of Pope Francis, and based on the experience of our partners overseas, climate justice a top priority for SCIAF. In practice, that means that we help communities overseas to adapt to the impacts of climate change, and we lobby our national and global leaders to take more action. SCIAF supports the work of SCCAN, and is interested in exploring opportunities to collaborate, particular in relation to community-led climate adaptation.
