Welcome to The Access Association -

Membership Site

Join Us

We welcome anyone with an interest in access and inclusion.  If you want to improve access and inclusion for people who are disabled by physical, organisational and social barriers then join us.

What background and experience do I need?

We do not require you to have any professional qualifications or specific expertise in order to become a member.  You may promote access in an employment or voluntary capacity and may consider yourself to be disabled or not.  Our membership experience and interests are broad and varied, for example:

  • The majority of members work in the public sector, but the rest are evenly spread across the private sector, third sector or non-waged roles.
  • One third of our members in paid roles work in access less than half the time, but they still find our support invaluable.

How much does membership cost?

The membership year begins on 1 July and existing members may renew up to one month in advance.

Membership costs only £70 per year.  We offer a concessionary rate of £35 for those in:

  • Part time or no employment
  • Retirement
  • Full-time education

New members joining during January to March pay a reduced membership fee - this amount is shown above right and is the amount you pay for the remainder of the current membership year upto the date shown above right.   New members joining from April to June get membership upto the end of the following membership year i.e. upto 15 months for the price of 12.
