How we manage social media

War on Want works with partners in the UK and around the world to fight the root causes of poverty and defend human rights. Our social media pages are places to share news and information about events, fundraising, campaigns and projects from War on Want and our partners.

Our vision is a world free from poverty and oppression. We stand in opposition to all forms of discrimination including sexism, disablism, homophobia, transphobia and all forms of racism including antisemitism and Islamophobia.

We manage all our social media space according to our values and where we identify posts that violate these principles, we will hide or remove the offending comments, and on a case-by-case basis, ban/block the user from our page. We do this to ensure that our social media channels are welcoming spaces for all and an example of the principles we stand for.

If you have any questions, please get in touch. Thank you for your support.
