Full 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 is a fostering agency, voluntary adoption agency, regional adoption agency, local authority children's service, or social work department in England, Northern Ireland, Wales, the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man, or Ireland, then you can become a full member. We tailor our full membership according to the needs of the country it is in.
