The UK currently provides funding to the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) for projects in the Occupied Palestinian Territories including in the West Bank and East Jerusalem through the Conflict, Stability and Security Fund (CSSF). The CSSF is a National Security Council led approach to UK effort in fragile and conflict-affected states. We are not currently supporting NRC work in Gaza.

The UK has committed the following funding to the NRC in the financial years below:

FY 22-23 - £3.07 million

FY 23-24 - £ 3.68 million

FY 24-25 - £ 2.7 million
