Find A Better Way is a UK charity, founded by Sir Bobby Charlton, working to find innovative solutions to create a landmine free world. It acts as a major funding body for vital, ground-breaking technological research into improving the tools available for the safe removal of landmines and explosive remnants of war.

Find A Better Way has already donated a significant amount of funding to a portfolio of nine research projects at leading UK universities. They are committed to cultivating the necessary cross-disciplinary collaboration necessary to find innovative, technology-led solutions, which will ultimately save countless lives.

Alongside the direct C-IED work they also provide humanitarian assistance in landmine afflicted areas. They also work to develop affordable prostheses and to train a cohort of trauma surgeons in state-of-the-art amputation techniques.
