The SA-UK Trust Network grew out of a need for UK-based people concerned about the upliftment of the peoples of southern Africa and the fauna and flora of the region, to interact, share ideas and seek ways to cooperate. The SA-UK Trust Network was formed in 2010. A group of committed volunteers formed a steering committee in order to guide the evolving Network. Since its inception, a number of gatherings have been held with dynamic and interesting speakers .
With the generous support of the Nedbank SA Charity Golf Day, The SA-UK Trust Network was formally registered with the Charity Commission in 2015.
