Many of you will of course feel you are already members of Herefordshire Carers Support, having registered with us as a Carer. And of course we have aimed to keep you in touch with everything ‘Carer’ in the county!
We are now offering a formal Membership to encourage Carers (and other supporters) to take part in how Herefordshire Carers Support is run, to bring diversity of opinion, raise our profile, give us a stronger voice in the local and national community and improve how we are democratically run.
We have recently updated our constitution to include new classes of Membership to achieve this as follows:
All Carers in Herefordshire over the age of 16 can apply to become a Full Member of Herefordshire Carers Support and offers a way for you to become involved.
If you are not a Carer but support the objects and activities of Herefordshire Carers Support, you can become an Associate Member.
If you are a group or organisation working with or for carers, you can become an Affiliated Member.
Apply for Herefordshire Carers Support membership at any time using our online forms and our next Board of Trustees meeting will consider your application for approval. This will not be unreasonably withheld.
As a member you will have a maximum liability for any Herefordshire Carers Support debts (if any) of £10, up to a year after your membership ceases.
It is important to note that being a member does not entitle you to special treatment or access to services and support. All our services will remain available to all Carers in Herefordshire regardless.
A copy of our Articles of Association (our constitution) is available on request.
