Our associate membership is designed to help keep you and your organisation well informed of new developments in the field, access expertise, engage in multidisciplinary forums, improve practice delivery, evidence regulatory compliance, engage in debate on current issues and offer an opportunity to shape policy and practice.

If your organisation falls under any of the following categories, you can become an associate member: law firm, NHS Trust, Clinical Commissioning Group, adoption/fostering/family support agency, training or service support provider, childcare charity, foster carers’/adopters’/kinship association, government department or statutory agency, voluntary agency, university department, or part of a research project. We tailor our associate membership according to the needs of the country it is in.
