Our membership is really important to us 

We are looking for like-minded people who support our ethos.

As a member you can help inspire and influence what we do - our main priority at the moment is to find a new premises to operate from - we are hoping to sort something out as a short-term measure whilst we establish a more permanent presence to carry on the good work that has been carried over the last seven years of operation.

By becoming a member we will provide you with regular updates and ask for your feedback and support. 

As with all things inspirational there are also legal aspects to consider -some are interesting and some quite boring but necessary,  so it's good if everyone is at least aware of them.

We've included the necessary details in the membership application below but  if you wish to read up in more detail you can view our articles of association,  policies and FAQs by following the links
