The UKNFS is a projects driven organisation. Some of our projects are directly run and facilitated by the UKNFS, whilst others are more orientated towards lobbying and working in partnership with others — this can be seen for example in support for fundraising initiatives in response to natural disasters, the creation of an Air Ambulance facility in Nepal, etc.
