Would you like to become part of the CSC network? We invite applications for network membership from organisations whose work impacts – whole, or in part – street children and/or children at risk of going on the streets.

By becoming part of the CSC network you will join forces with a wide range of individuals and organisations who believe in realising the rights of street children. We believe that collectively we can achieve maximum impact through being ‘Louder Together’.

Through becoming a member of the CSC network you will have access to a number of benefits including:

  • Opportunities to input into and benefit from CSC’s Advocacy initiatives: In 2011 we contributed to getting the first UN Resolution on street children passed in 20 years; in 2012 we were lead consultant on a UN study on street children and from 2014 we are acting as the coordinator of the Advisory Group to the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child to develop a General Comment on Children in Street Situations
  • An opportunity to participate in the UK All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Street Children, for which CSC is the secretariat
  • Free copies of CSC produced publications e.g. State of the Worlds Street Children: Violence (2007); State of the Worlds Street Children: Research (2012); The United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights study into the protection and promotion of children living and/or working on the street (2012)
  • Advance information on International Day for Street Children, launched by CSC, which takes place every year on April 12th
