As a member of the Humanitarian Standards Partnership, HelpAge partners with CBM Global to increase awareness of the importance of inclusive practices for older people and people with disabilities across the humanitarian sector.
This is achieved through the development of humanitarian standards, statements which describe the actions needed so that people caught up in crises are able to exercise their rights, specifically to receive protection and assistance and to live in dignity.
