Join us

Join us and be part of Scotland’s anti-poverty movement!

Membership is open to all organisations that share our desire to tackle poverty. For the financial year 2020-21 we have decided to suspend membership fees for civil society organisations with an income of less than £500,000 who wish to become full members.

We encourage members to actively participate in the life of the organisation. It is more important than ever that we have an active anti-poverty movement in Scotland.
