Souter Charitable Trust reaching every corner of the globe 


Alpha International

Alpha is a chance to ask these big questions and explore the Christian faith in a fun, non-pressurised environment.         Each session includes a short film and a discussion where you can share what you think with a small group of people just like you.

Christians Against Poverty 

Christians Against Poverty (CAP) is a national debt counselling charity. 
CAP offers not only hope but a solution to anyone in debt through its in-depth counselling service.

World Vision 

World Vision works together with children and their communities, in almost 100 countries to transform the lives of the world’s most vulnerable children.


Mary's Meals

The work of Mary’s Meals is beautifully simple; the charity provides one good meal every day for hungry children at school in 19 of the world’s poorest countries. The promise of these life-changing meals attracts children to the classroom where, instead of working or begging for food, they can gain an education that will one day be their ladder out of poverty. Where Mary’s Meals are provided there is a rise in rates of enrolment, attendance and academic performance, and children are happier too. It costs just £15.90 to feed a child with Mary’s Meals every school day for an entire year.



ACET UK equips and inspires individuals, schools, churches, and organisations, in the UK and internationally, to              transform culture by promoting healthy self-esteem, positive relationships, and good sexual health.                       We do this by:

  • Educating young people through our Esteem programme

  • Sharing our expertise through delivering Esteem training and providing resources to those who work with young people, including youth workers, teachers and health practitioners

  • Providing support to parents on how to talk to their children about relationships and sex

  • Training and mobilising churches to facilitate conversations around relationships and sex

  • Working with and training international partners who share our vision and mission and who are committed to mobilising the church to promote healthy relationships, improve sexual health and respond to the HIV pandemic

ACET teams flourish across sub-Saharan Africa, Eastern Europe, and Central Asia inspired by the call to care for those in need, and to educate and train others. The work the Souter Charitable Trust is supporting includes ACET Ukraine’s energetic and vibrant work in schools and youth clubs - helping to prevent suicides in young people across Ukraine, and empowering them to live their lives to the full.


International Justice Mission (IJM)

Andy Bevan, Scotland Director for International Justice Mission (IJM), provides an update on how IJM is managing in light of the coronavirus pandemic. In addition, IJM’s Lucille Dejito shares on the work the Souter Charitable Trust is making possible in the Philippines. IJM’s work in the Philippines comes alongside the issue of Online Sexual Exploitation of Children. During lockdown, IJM has witnessed an increase in this form violence but this has been matched by IJM’s creativity and an unprecedented number of operations and children rescued. The work of justice goes on despite the challenges our world is facing and IJM is extremely grateful to stand alongside the Souter Charitable Trust in this fight.
