About Emergency Nutrition Network (ENN)

ENN’s vision is that every individual caught up in a nutritional emergency, or suffering from malnutrition anywhere in the world, gets the most effective help possible. ENN undertakes knowledge management, research and advocacy to support national governments, civil society, UN, donor and academic organisations. Through these collaborations we support agencies to implement evidence- based nutrition programming, predominantly in low- and middle-income countries and in fragile and conflict affected states.

With a turnover of between £1 and £2 million per annum, ENN is a small but effective and well- respected charity with an excellent reputation amongst nutrition stakeholders. ENN’s main office is in Oxford, UK and we have a London sub-office and three team members located in India, Senegal and Kenya.

ENN’s technical work is driven by five Technical Directors (TDs) who are senior nutrition specialists, all of whom are home-based. One TD is responsible for strategic oversight (TD-S). An established team of 12 ENN personnel and a number of associates (experienced consultants) help deliver on our portfolio of work. ENN is governed by a Board of Trustees.
