Parents and Carers Membership of Gendered Intelligence
In order to create a more secure environment for parents and carers, we are putting in place a formal membership scheme from January 2017.
You have to become a member in order to:
- Attend a support group at Gendered Intelligence
- Attend one of our events for parents and carers
- Use our online forum
In order to become a member, you will be required to:
- Fill out in a membership form
- Pay a membership fee (with the exception of online-only membership)
- Agree to our ["Codes of Conduct for participants, staff, volunteers and guests in activities”]
Membership will be charged annually and begin on the date that we receive your membership fee. Membership will be priced per household, with a discounted concessionary rate available.
Full rate: £60 per year
Discounted rate*: £36 per year
There is no membership fee for those who only use the online forum and do not attend our support group.
*The discounted rate is available for unwaged or low-income households, those in receipt of benefits (including state pension) or for those who would otherwise be unable to pay the full fee. If you unsure whether you qualify, or you are unable to pay the fee in one lump sum, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
