Membership types and subscriptions
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 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.
Our 2021 corporate supporters are:
- Boston Scientific
- Kyowa Kirin
- Merck Serono
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.
