Who we are

Inspired by our Catholic roots, and building on 70 years’ experience of development, we believe poor and marginalised people can gain the power to transform their lives.

Our people

People are at the heart of our work – not just our development workers and volunteers, but also the staff, trustees, members, supporters and campaigners who make it all possible.

Our funds

Progressio is a registered charity and receives funding from the UK Department for International Development, international and UK trusts and grant-making bodies, and individual supporters.
