An affiliate is a large organisation such as a firm, chamber or Trade Union who pays a monthly or yearly fee to the law centre, which will entitle them to:

  • Our regular newsletter and information about the upcoming events.
  • Acknowledgement as an affiliate in our literature for public events, as well as our website and annual reports.
  • Invitations to our relevant campaign and development meetings.

Affiliates may also apply for membership status and thus be entitled to vote in the AGM as a representative of their respective organisation. Affiliates who wish to have voting rights at the AGM, as with Members, must complete a membership form for approval by the Management Committee.

It will be at the discretion of the management committee to determine whether an organisation is suitable for affiliate status.

We already work with a number of affiliates and are grateful for their support.
