About us

Save the Children’s (SC) origins lie in emergency response, and this has remained central to our work ever since. Our approach integrates our emergency and development work, through the medium of our country programmes. With the increasing frequency and severity of emergencies world-wide the organisation is increasing its capacity to support programmes in both sudden onset and chronic emergency situations. Our Emergency Response Personnel (ERP) plays a key part with Save the Children’s humanitarian strategy. Members of the ERP scheme are active members of Save the Children UK’s (SCUK) humanitarian department, and contribute to organisational learning and help build organisation capacity to respond effectively to emergencies world-wide. Our Emergency Response Personnel are usually deployed for medium-term assignments for: •An emergency response where Save the Children is scaling up and we need immediate emergency expertise. •Surge capacity to a country programme by either filling a vacant position and/or adding further skills and experience to country programmes. •Capacity building of individuals and/or country programmes to ensure that programmes are being run effectively.
