Membership types and subscriptions

Membership types


Full membership is open to national voluntary (non-statutory, non-profit) organisations who represent patients, service users, families and carers, who in addition to the full benefits of membership, will have a right to vote at the Annual General Meeting (AGM), have the right to nominate a trustee and an opportunity to influence our strategic direction. Subscriptions are income assessed.

Full affiliate membership is open to regional neurological alliances operating on a non-statutory, non-profit basis. Affiliate members will pay a subscription rate which is not income assessed.


Associate status is open to non-profit professional associations and statutory authorities who will play an active part in the Alliance but do not have the right to nominate a trustee or vote at the AGM. Subscriptions are income assessed.

Regional associations of neurological organisations are also associates. They are staff led groups and will pay a subscription rate which is not income assessed.

Corporate supporters

Corporate supporter status is open to for-profit organisations, who cannot vote at the AGM or nominate a trustee, and cannot influence our policy direction, but are able to participate in Alliance events and keep up to date with policy and news affecting people with a neurological condition. Corporate supporter status is not income assessed.

Our current corporate supporters are:

  • Abbvie
  • Biogen
  • Lundbeck
  • Merck Serono
  • Novartis
  • Pfizer
  • Roche
  • Sanofi
  • Sandoz
  • Teva
  • UCB

Please read through our relationships policy which ensures that in seeking and securing non-member funding the Alliance has a clearly understood way of working, underpinned by high ethical principles.
