National_Homeless_Network logo.jpeg

The National Homeless Network is a movement that brings together various organisations in numerous cities across South Africa.


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

The Network was established in 2017, and held its 3rd annual meeting held in November 2019 in Bloemfontein, Mangaung.

The Network seeks collectively across South Africa to help 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
