How we work

Results is a non-partisan and non-profit international aid and development agency operating in Australia for more than 35 years.  We mobilise a national network of Advocates with a shared mission to end extreme poverty.

No matter where people are born, everyone should have equal opportunities to fulfil their potential in life. This means having access to basic health care, quality education, good nutrition, and fair economic participation.

Why Results is effective, unique and powerful

Rather than building a large staff and operational presence in Australia, our primary focus is on getting money to where it's needed most: to communities in need.  We deliberately keep our operations compact and overheads low so we can focus our efforts on leveraging millions in government funding for vital health, education and nutrition initiatives throughout the Asia Pacific region and beyond.

We are the only development agency in Australia dedicated to advocating for global health equity. We foreground global health due to the prevalence of diseases that disproportionately affect low-income communities. Since poor health is often both a cause and effect of poverty, we see addressing health as a necessary step towards ending global poverty.

Our advocacy has secured hundreds of millions of Australian Government funding for health, nutrition, and education initiatives throughout our region. These investments have transformed whole communities and saved millions of lives.

Our model of advocacy

Our advocacy takes three complimentary forms: grassroots, policy and parliamentary. Combining these different approaches to advocacy in a coordinated way makes the whole greater than the sum of the individual parts, and helps us to realise our vision of a world free from poverty.

Results is proud of its history of thoughtful and peaceful advocacy. For decades, we’ve worked diplomatically with parliamentarians across both sides of politics, and have developed deep and trusted relationships with decision makers as a result of our respectful, considered and informed approach to creating change. It is a form of advocacy that we are proud to instil in our Advocates and Fellows.

Our grassroots advocates are skilled individuals who take action in their communities, build relationships with their MPs and influence Government decisions to end poverty.

Through our policy work we develop rigorous expertise on international development issues, allowing us to engage in policy discussions with parliamentarians and with international organisations.

We work hard to build powerful, long-lasting relationships with parliamentarians of all political parties to develop them as champions for our issues, to help influence decision-makers in Australia and internationally.
