Humanitarian Capacity Building

Hands-on learning programmes

Giving you the confidence and skills to save and protect lives, and minimise suffering in humanitarian emergencies.

Developed by humanitarians, for humanitarians

We are a dedicated team based within Save the Children UK that provides capacity building advice and support, and designs and runs specialist humanitarian training programmes for Save the Children and the humanitarian sector as a whole.

Our vision is that Humanitarian responses will be well staffed by trained professional humanitarians who are able to fulfil the needs required, especially at the national and regional level.

We have both an implementing and advisory function; we design and deliver our own programmes and resources, as well as advising other teams and organisations on humanitarian capacity building products and services.
