Membership is free.  We have two levels of membership:

Full Membership is open to any voluntary and community group or organisation based in and operating within the Borough of Bolton which is sympathetic to our aims.  If you are a social enterprise, full membership is open to you if you can demonstrate that you have a wider accountability to the public via a board of trustees, directors or membership and that all profits are re-invested in your social purpose.

Associate Membership is open to other organisations sympathetic to our aims but who do not qualify for our full membership.
