About International Service

International Service is a development charity, based in York, that for over 60 years, has been empowering some of the world’s most marginalised people to achieve lasting, positive change.

International Service is governed by a Board of Trustees, responsible for developing strategy, monitoring progress, and ensuring good governance.
