VISION

Start Network’s vision is for a proactive, innovative and locally-owned humanitarian system in which people receive better quality humanitarian aid, maintain their dignity and are protected from suffering and harm.

MISSION

Our mission is to achieve this vision by making systemic-level shifts in the way humanitarian aid is approached and delivered by:

- Shifting humanitarian aid funding approaches from reactive to proactive;

- Creating a more balanced aid delivery system that shifts power and decision-making to organisations and individuals closest to the frontline; and

- Facilitating and scaling innovative and home-grown solutions to humanitarian problems.

VALUES

To achieve our vision, we aim to be the change we want to see, upholding the following values in both our staff and our members:

- We put people first: the communities we serve come first in our decision-making and programming.

- We are brave: we have great ambition and are willing to explore new things and are willing to take risks to achieve it.

- We operate collectively: we leverage the value of working as a network, sharing risk and resources and learning together.

- We are inclusive: we see the value in diverse perspectives and work to remove the barriers that prevent voices being heard.

- We are open: we work transparently and with integrity, building mutual trust in all levels of our work, from governance to programming.
