The Agencies of the Bishops' Conference were established by the Bishops of England and Wales to serve the Catholic community and wider society.
Our agencies work in the fields of overseas mission, aid and development, education, racial justice and maritime welfare. Each agency has a bishop as President, Chairman or Episcopal Liaison.
CSAN is the official agency of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales for domestic social action. It is a family of social action charities collectively known as the Caritas network which is supported by the CSAN team.
