NACCOM (The No Accommodation Network) is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (registered number 1162434) preventing destitution across the UK. It is made up of member organisations providing shelter and support to destitute asylum seekers, refugees and migrants with no recourse to public funds.
We are committed to sharing resources and working together effectively. The following membership policy reflects these two core principles.
- We believe that no organisation should be excluded from membership due to a lack of finance.
- Paying a membership fee, however small, demonstrates an appreciation of the benefits of being a member of NACCOM, and all fees contribute to the support we can offer.
Criteria for Membership
Full membership of NACCOM is open to any organisation that is providing or about to start providing accommodation for destitute asylum seekers. They may in addition provide accommodation for refugees and others with no recourse to public funds.
Associate membership is open to any individual or organisation that is in support of the aims of NACCOM. For instance, a charity that is not directly accommodating destitute asylum seekers but works closely with others that do, or an individual looking to better understand the sector before setting up their own project. Associate membership will not convey voting rights at Annual or Extraordinary General Meetings.
