Global connections for social justice

Who we are

The International Federation of Settlements and Neighborhood Centers (IFS) is a global movement of more than 11000 member associations that include multi-purpose, community-based organizations across the world. We believe in empowering the people who work for social justice by connecting, inspiring and supporting an inclusive global community. 

“Let’s all be brave and creative builders of a much better and just world”

How to become a member

Our Membership spans the globe offering partnership for programs and conferences that introduce you to new networking channels.

Focus Areas: IFS Conference Sydney 2020

The conference will explore where we are in our social justice journey, what works, what skills and resources we will need and identify the most promising pathways to move forward as both a global movement and a force for local empowerment. Over three days, this conference will take us on a journey through ‘People’, ‘Policy and Practice’, and ‘Possibilities’ as we work towards a conference declaration focused on Social Justice that will go to the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).
