Civil society partnerships are fundamental to all our work at the RCS. We never work in Commonwealth countries without partnering with local organisations.
Civil society is a fundamental pillar of the Commonwealth. As the leading international civil society organisation dedicated to working in the Commonwealth, we are committed to supporting civil society partners’ work to advance the values found in the Commonwealth Charter. This includes working with established civil society organisations, and supporting emerging young leaders to build advocacy skills and access high-level spaces where their voices can be heard.

We are supporting diverse coalitions to advance equality before the law in a range of Commonwealth countries.
We support The Commonwealth Equality Network and its members to use the Commonwealth as a vehicle for advancing LGBT+ equality.
