Membership

On April 1st 2015 the Association of Carers became a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO), our new charity number is 1159551. The benefits of being a CIO are as follows:

  • Members and trustees are usually personally safeguarded from the financial liabilities the charity incurs, which is not normally the case for unincorporated charities
  • The charity has a legal personality of its own, enabling it to conduct business in its own name, rather than the name of the trustees.

As a CIO, we now have the opportunity for people to become members of the Association. Membership is FREE and members have a say on how we operate, who our trustees are and can vote at our Annual General Meeting, they also receive a copy of our quarterly magazine, Carers Voice and other relevant information, such as details of our fundraising initiatives and changes to the way we deliver services.

A member can be anyone who receives our services or has received them in the past, is a volunteer or former volunteer or someone who wants to support us, because they believe that what we do is important.

If you would like to become a member of the Association of Carers, please complete the form and return to us.
