Our team

IMPACT’s policy of working with local people, instead of sending expensive expatriate staff overseas reduces costs and – most importantly – empowers men and women to meet the needs of their own communities in a sustainable way that does not create dependency.

Our small UK team are based in Haywards Heath, guided by our Board of Trustees.

We work together with IMPACT Switzerland and IMPACT Norway to raise money to support our partners throughout Africa and Asia.
