UK Aid Direct is a £150 million programme currently changing the lives of over *4 million of the world’s poorest people with UK aid from the UK Government.

Funded by the former Department for International Development (DFID), now Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO), UK Aid Direct supports small and medium sized civil society organisations (CSOs), based in the UK and overseas, to achieve sustained poverty reduction and to achieve the United Nations’ Global Goals.

Formerly known as the Global Poverty Action Fund (GPAF), the fund was relaunched in 2014 as UK Aid Direct. As a flexible fund, UK Aid Direct is adaptive and demand-led, responding to UK government priorities.
