Disasters Emergency Committee
Who we are
The DEC brings 14 leading UK aid charities together in times of crisis. We launch appeals to raise money to help those impacted by disaster, making sure that funds reach those that need them most.
We respond to disasters in the world’s poorest countries, using a set of criteria to help us decide when we launch an appealand how we can be most effective. The DEC consists of member agencies who are experts in humanitarian aid, delivering the efficient disaster responses which donors expect and those affected by disasters need.
