CAFOD is the official Catholic aid agency for England and Wales.

We work with partners across the world, wherever the need is greatest, to bring hope, compassion and solidarity to poor communities, standing side by side with them to end poverty and injustice. We work with people of all faiths and none.

We work with more than 500 partners overseas, and with partners in the UK - all working to reduce poverty. Inspired by Scripture and Catholic Social Teaching, and the experiences and hopes of people living in poverty, CAFOD works for a safe, sustainable and peaceful world.

At St Peter's the whole school community has at least three dedicated fund raising days per school year as well as guest speakers in assemblies and planned lessons on how CAFOD works in countries all over the world. In the last two years St Peter's has joined forces with CAFOD in having a 'Race for Women' to highlight how women are still put down and overlooked in many countries.
