All We Can is thrilled to announce that it has been shortlisted for Third Sector’s inaugural ‘Best Charities to Work For’ rankings – placed fourth out of a list of twenty organisations.
‘We see people’s potential, not their poverty – and meet them as equal partners in development’ said Chief Executive Graeme Hodge. ‘Our partnership approach is as embedded among our UK team and culture as it is in our work in some of the world’s poorest communities overseas. Staff feel that they can be themselves, and passionately own our vision. We all invest in the culture of our team and movement to create an environment that encourages creativity, support, innovation, compassion, collaboration and respect.’
The rankings were revealed on the Third Sector website, and are based on levels of engagement and satisfaction among employees. According to Third Sector, All We Can’s ‘caring ethos and the comfortable office space’ as well as ‘child-friendly practices’ are just some of the things which contributed to All We Can being awarded this accolade.
Speaking about the announcement, Graeme Hodge said, ‘We work to bring big change – not to grow big. We’ve found being a medium-sized charity means that we’re big enough to have a real impact while remaining agile and sustaining a culture of trust and professional innovation.’
All We Can traces its roots to 1938, when minister Revd Henry Carter called upon the Methodist Church to respond to the refugee crisis in Europe. He pioneered a Methodist Refugee Fund to help young Jewish boys from annexed Austria escape Nazi persecution. Since its inception more than 80 years ago, All We Can has remained steadfastly committed to serving vulnerable and marginalised communities around the world.
Today, we continue to work in some of the poorest communities on earth, providing long term partnership to local organisations and people, and responding to humanitarian disasters. Our vision is to ‘see every person’s potential fulfilled’.
