The Consortium for Street Children’s annual conference on 9th November 2017 in London brings together academics and practitioners to explore new understandings of street-connected children and best practice in the sector. Each year, delegates enjoy browsing poster displays which exhibit recent research on children in street situations.

Sign up for a place on the first Building with Bamboo shared learning panel on 21st June.
Do you want to be part of a community that generates knowledge, improves interventions and creates sustainable change for street children?
Building with Bamboo is our new international learning project, in partnership with Oak Foundation, exploring how resilience-based approaches can improve outcomes for street-connected children exposed to sexual abuse and sexual exploitation.
In 1989 Unicef estimated that there were 100 million street children in the world. This figure was repeated in 2002 and again in 2005. However, it is a figure that has been repeatedly criticised as being invalid and having no basis in fact.
However challenging, obtaining accurate data on street children is essential for practitioners, policy-makers and donors alike, who can use this information to better direct their programmes, policies and to target and evaluate their funding streams.
CSC’s next Counting Webinar, an opportunity for practitioners and academics to share knowledge and expertise on counting, will take place on the 13th of September from 3:00 – 4:45 pm GMT.
