Associate Membership

Associate membership is available to individuals or organisations who do not fulfil the criteria for full membership. They are still required to support our Values and our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion policy

If you do not meet our full membership criteria you may still become an associate member if you are:

  • An individual such as a consultant working in the voluntary sector.
  • A group that has an interest in our work but operates outside our local boundaries.
  • An organisation constituted in a way that cannot be described as charitable (such as a local authority or limited company without charity status).

Associate members receive our publications but have no voting rights.

There is currently no charge for Associates, but this may change in the future.
