Our organisations

The Commonwealth is often described as a 'family' of nations and peoples. This is most apparent in the network of more than 80 societies, institutions, associations, organisations and charities that work towards improving people's lives. At the heart of this is the Commonwealth Secretariat, which implements decisions and plans of Commonwealth leaders.

Commonwealth organisations work in diverse specialist areas from education to urban planning and meteorology.
