Oxfam is a vibrant global movement of dedicated people fighting poverty - together.
Oxfam fights poverty in three ways: Campaigning, Development and Emergency Response.
Campaigning for change: Poverty isn’t just about lack of resources. In a wealthy world it’s about bad decisions made by powerful people. Oxfam campaigns hard, putting pressure on leaders for real lasting change.
Development work: Poor people can take control, solve their own problems, and rely on themselves – with the right support. Fighting poverty, we fund long-term work worldwide.
Emergency response: People need help in an emergency – fast. We save lives, swiftly delivering aid, support and protection; and we help people prepare for future crises.
Oxfam also has around 670 shops in the UK and an online shop selling over 100,000 volunteer-listed second-hand clothes, books, music and collectables, plus Fairtrade and ethical gifts: http://www.oxfam.org.uk/shop

Who we are
Oxfam is a global movement of people who are fighting inequality to end poverty and injustice. We are working across regions in about 70 countries, with thousands of partners, and allies, supporting communities to build better lives for themselves, grow resilience and protect lives and livelihoods also in times of crisis.
Because we want lasting solutions, we fight the inequalities that keep people locked in poverty and injustice, we tackle not the symptoms but the systems, and we campaign for genuine, durable change.
Towards a just and sustainable world
We have a vision of a just and sustainable world. A world where people and the planet are at the center of our economy. Where women and girls live free from violence and discrimination. Where the climate crisis is contained. And where governance systems are inclusive and allow for those in power to be held to account.
Our ambition is lasting impact. We make a difference by being part of a global movement for social justice.
What we believe in
We believe in the power of people.
Change at scale is possible when we act in solidarity with the people experiencing poverty and injustice. Even where they live in need, they are often not afraid to speak out against inequality, discrimination and exclusion. They have the courage to raise their voices and hold those in power to account for their actions.
Millions worldwide are mobilizing. They are not fighting separate battles but connecting across borders in solidarity and creating a momentum that can no longer be ignored. They are the changemakers who will win the fight against inequality. They are the ones who will beat poverty and injustice.
We offer them support to help relieve their suffering. We champion their causes and act together to transform lives and create change that lasts.
We fight inequality to end poverty and injustice.
We commit to living our values so that we can be known for our integrity. This means transforming our governance, management, and operational structures, and nurturing a culture of continuous learning and reflection.
We understand that how we work is as important as what we work on.
We believe everyone has the right to be treated fairly and to have the same rights and opportunities.
We acknowledge and seek to expand people’s agency over their lives and the decisions that impact them.
We join hands, support, and collaborate across boundaries in working towards a just and sustainable world.
We embrace diversity and difference and value the perspectives and contributions of all people and communities in their fight against poverty and injustice.
We take responsibility for our action and inaction and hold ourselves accountable to the people we work with and for.
We speak truth to power and act with conviction on the justice of our causes.
