Connecting people in crisis to the best solutions
We are an international network of NGOs that enables a broad range of humanitarian actors and partners to provide the best possible solutions for people affected by crises. We provide platforms to enable collaborative approaches to decision-making and provision, which enable us to achieve more together than any single organisation acting alone could accomplish.
What we stand for
Start Network members work together to shape a humanitarian sector that is: Diverse: a ‘humanitarian ecosystem’ with organisations of different sizes and types, which can adapt and grow. Decentralised: shifting decision making and leadership to the places where disasters happen. Collaborative: creating relationships across national, cultural, organisational boundaries.
An international network
Today the Start Network extends to 39 members and their 7000 partner organisations, employing more than a quarter million people across 200 countries and territories.Read more
