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. Our 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.
Please read our full Membership Policy before considering making an application.
