 Why Join The Network?


  • A channel to the Bishops

CSAN is the official agency of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales for domestic social action. Together with The Network, it provides a link between organisations and the Bishops’ conference.

  • A link to the wider Caritas family

The Network offers an opportunity to work with our sister charities in Europe within the Caritas Europa network. This allows the sharing of best practice on a wider scale, opportunities for accessing and participating in research within the EU. This offers the potential to influence policy on a Caritas, EU and governmental level.

  • The chance to be part of a diverse and successful network

The Network gives a bigger perspective of Catholic social action. It offers organisations a chance to look beyond their own work and learn strategies and practices of other members. With experience in advocacy, collaborative research and projects, The Network seeks to extend and build on these areas.

  • A new platform, a higher profile within the Catholic community

The Network uses the strength of the Catholic community, working together for the better of the most vulnerable in our society, at a grass-roots level and in the public sphere.
