The GNDR secretariat serves as a "support entity" to the GNDR membership and reports to the Global Board. The Secretariat is registered in the UK (subject to UK charities law) and currently has nine UK-based staff and five regionally-based staff

The main responsibility of the Secretariat is to support the development, coordination and implementation of GNDR strategic plan as defined by the Global Board and the broader membership. This involves the development of internal institutional and operational capacities, including effective internal management functions and procedures (e.g. human resources; administration; finance and accounting; fundraising; membership support; operations; communications and reporting; policy and advocacy), together with the mobilisation of adequate human and financial resources.

Over the course of the next few years, as the GNDR membership grows and extends its outreach, together with the development of strategic partnerships with other development organisations, it is envisaged that the institutional and operational capacities of the GNDR Secretariat will be gradually be upgraded and enhanced to accommodate the increased demands, whilst maintaining essential administrative, financial, communications, and coordination functions to the broader membership.
