JustShare is a coalition of churches and charities committed to global development and social justice, seeking to empower the world’s poorest communities and campaigning for a just share of the world’s resources for all.
Based at St Mary-le-Bow Church, Cheapside, JustShare has a unique niche in the City of London from which both to raise awareness of global economic injustice and to co-ordinate a response to it. JustShare draws its vision and values from the Christian faith but is open to people of all faiths and none who are committed to working together for a fairer world. JustShare is run by a Steering Group of church and NGO representatives, and works closely with a number of diocesan and development networks.
