How we work

Last updated: 31/03/2020

CAAT is both an organisation and a movement of supporters, activists and partners.

Our network of local groups and contacts play a vital role in spreading our message and campaigning up and down the country. We also work with special interest networks, for example the CAAT Universities Network. CAAT’s networks reflect the interest of particular groups of supporters at any given time and we are open to the supporting new networks if there is a strong desire from a particular section of supporters.

We work with a wide range of partners who share our values and goals, including diaspora communities, other campaigning groups and elected representatives at all levels.

CAAT has a non-hierarchical organisational structure. All permanent members of staff are members of the Steering Committee (CAAT’s board of directors), along with an equal number of non-executive directors drawn from our supporter base. Steering Committee is responsible for CAAT’s governance and strategy.

Our small team of paid staff are responsible for the day-to-day management of the organisation and are supported by our dedicated office volunteers, without whom we would not be able to function.

Our working practices

Campaign Against Arms Trade strives towards ethical and inclusive working practices in all that we do. We are committed to providing equal opportunities for all involved with the organisation. Our equal opportunities policy can be read here.

We have also signed up to Together Against Prevent and Keep Volunteering Voluntary.

CAAT would not exist without its supporters. Each new supporter helps us strengthen our call for an end to the international arms trade.
