Vision and Mission


As the official aid agency of the Catholic Church in Scotland and part of the global Caritas family, the work of SCIAF is born of deeply held values which inspire all our work.

The SCIAF vision is of a world in which all people, especially the poor and oppressed, have the opportunity and the means to live life and live it to the full.

In our mission we are inspired by the Gospel call to build a just world. SCIAF challenges injustice by strengthening poor and oppressed people and by stimulating the Scottish public to share in our common struggle for human dignity.

We are proud to be Scotland's Aid Agency. SCIAF hopes that you will join us in our work to reduce poverty and create a just world for all.

1 in 7 people will go bed to hungry tonight. You can help SCIAF change that.
