The Strategic Alliance

Building high-impact strategic partnerships for refugees.


The UK for UNHCR Strategic Alliance is a coalition of companies that display an outstanding commitment to protect and empower refugees.

Our Strategic Allies work with us in a variety of ways, making multi-year commitments, donating their resources and skills, and lending their voice to our campaigns and advocacy.

Allies receive a range of exclusive benefits, including a dedicated relationship manager and multi-year partnership planning, support to communicate your impact to your stakeholders, private briefings and invites to exclusive special events, to name a few. 

The Strategic Alliance also provides a unique platform for companies to showcase their CSR credentials, work towards the Sustainable Development Goals, explore new approaches, such as innovative financing, and direct their support to themes, ranging from education to climate change.

Spotlight – Virgin Atlantic Foundation

UK for UNHCR is the dedicated international partner for ‘Passport to Change’, a Virgin Atlantic Foundation (VAF) programme designed to empower future generations through education.  

Support from VAF is funding education for young refugees in Delhi, India. In the first year of our partnership alone, over 6,000 refugees have positively benefitted from their support. 

Additionally, VAF have championed UNHCR’s social enterprise MADE 51 which helps refugee artisans access global markets to sell their crafts, as well as hosting charity football matches and matching employee donations to the UNHCR Ukraine Emergency appeal. Click here to find out more.
