Why should I donate to Concern rather than another organisation?

Concern is established, trusted, well known, community-based and well-managed. Concern has won many awards for financial accounts from the Leinster Institute of Chartered Accountants. Concern also has a reputation of being emergency specialists – we respond very quickly when emergencies occur. Concern is Ireland's largest overseas development agency.

Wherever possible, we try to work through local partner organisations in order to make projects self-sustainable as well as maximising the use of local and cultural knowledge. Concern has been praised for its consultative approach to development projects in Africa, working closely with the people it is helping in order to create long-lasting solutions to poverty.
