Careers at The Hands Up Foundation

Hands Up is a small and innovative charity that funds health and education programmes in Syria and neighbouring countries. Our aim is to make a positive difference to Syrians in need. We work directly with local organisations who know the needs and context of their local communities better than anyone. Our work is simple, positive and transparent.

We raise money and awareness through creative fundraising initiatives which give others a tangible way of helping. Having started out by holding Syrian-inspired feasts at our kitchen table in 2012, we have now raised over £7 million.
