The National Homeless Network brings together over a dozen organisations in eight cities across South Africa

The National Homeless Network includes practitioners, NGOs, FBOs, CBOs, local homeless forums, activists, academics and most importantly current, as well as former homeless individuals. It also partners with various government institutions and departments.

Established in 2017, the National Homeless Network seeks to help collectively across South Africa to prevent homelessness, to improve the conditions of people who are homeless, and to find pathways out of homelessness.

The Mandate of the Network is focused on the following four activities:

  1. Advocating for the homeless with National government and supporting advocacy at Provincial and Municipal levels
  2. Liaising at all levels with Government departments and institutions
  3. Sharing information on best practice, policies from across SA and the world
  4. Sharing research and developing a common research agenda
