At a glance

Oxfam GB's Right to Be Heard Framework was introduced to guide our work and strengthen our focus in this important area.

Overview

Oxfam's vision is a just world without poverty. We envision a world in which people can influence decisions that affect their lives, enjoy their rights, and assume their responsibilities as full citizens of a world in which all human beings are valued and treated equally.

It is aimed primarily at Oxfam GB programme staff but will also be useful for other development colleagues working in this area.
