The International Network operates on the principles of participation, transparency, coherence, respect for diversity, equality, fraternity and solidarity.
The International Network is a network of street social workers who are members of a national platform, either supported by an existing structure or with its own identity (association, federation, collective). It is hoped that the platform will be made up of street workers from different associations, so as to encourage national networking.
Each national platform appoints a representative and a substitute for a renewable 4-year term, who, as national coordinators, are responsible for liaising with the International Network.
All the national coordinators form the International Pilot Group, a decision-making body that meets every two years to decide on the actions, objectives and activities to be implemented.
With a view to decentralizing the Network, each region is represented by regional coordinators appointed by the members of the national platforms of the 4 regions.
The International Network’s technical team, based in Brussels, is responsible for the framework and follow-up of the action plan, and for providing support to the regional coordinators and national platforms.
