The global partnership between War Child and law firm Allen & Overy from 2016/18 was the most successful staff-facing partnership in War Child history, delivering massive impact to children affected by war.

Income – £701,000 raised over last 12 months of the partnership – almost twice as much as any previous charity

Direct support – The Rescue Childhood programme funded by A&O has provided protection, psychological support and education to 2,310 displaced children and additional support to 1,185 parents and caregivers

Local capacity - Rescue Childhood has set the standard for Early Childhood Care and Development in the Jordanian national curriculum

Professional support – A&O has given £183,000 in Pro bono and Gift-in-Kind including an independent review of War Child culture and operations enabling War Child to maintain the highest standards

Sustainable growth - Unrestricted funding was invested in developing our new football programme War Child FC, and growth of our award-winning videogame fundraising team.


"We’ve achieved so much with War Child – we’ve raised far more money than we thought, which means we’ve been able to help thousands of children affected by conflict, not only now but in the future too" Wim Dejonghe, Senior Partner Allen & Overy
