Associate Membership

Associate membership is open to anyone who is sympathetic to Napo's aims and objectives and wishes to be associated with the union. Anyone entitled to full membership cannot be an associate member. Find out if you are entitled to full membership here.

Associate membership entitles you to the following:

  • Associate members are welcome at all branch meetings and national Napo meetings such as AGM, but cannot vote on motions
  • Free copies of Napo News (8 issues per year)
  • Free copies of the Probation Journal or Family Court Journal
  • All additional benefits are available to associate members (more information on the membership benefits page)

Associate membership costs £40 per annum.

In order to join as an associate member you will need to send an application form, along with your cheque for your fees made payable to Napo to your local membership secretary. Because membership secretaries can change throughout the year you will need to either call or email the membership department at Napo to find out who your local contact is.
