Become a member

The Disability Resource Centre (DRC) operates a membership scheme for individuals and organisations. 

Membership is open to individuals aged 16 year or over and any group, or organisation, which is run by a minimum of 80% of individuals with a disability.  Our constitution does require that a minimum of 80% of our members are disabled people.

Being a full member of DRC gives you the opportunity to:

  • Attend and vote at the Annual General Meeting
  • Become involved in the running of the DRC, through participation at regular Service User Group meetings
  • Become involved in the decision-making processes of DRC
  • Gain free access to resources and services at DRC
  • Stand for election to the Board of Directors, after six months, either through being co-opted or at the Annual General Meeting.

At present DRC does not charge for individual membership, however you can opt to make a donation towards the cost of us undertaking our work.

Full details concerning membership are included in our Memorandum and Articles of Association. (Click here for further details)
