Frequently Asked Questions

How do I join?

It’s free – sign up here!

What is the difference between a member and a supporter?

Both believe in an equal society!  Both get information about the work of ENABLE Scotland.  The main difference is in how involved you want to be.

A member plays an active role in the running of ENABLE Scotland through its AGM and voting for membership of Scottish Council

A supporter shows their support in different ways like campaigning and fundraising, but does not have a say in how the charity is run, or what we campaign for.

Do I need to be a member to access help and support, or to come to groups?

No – everyone is welcome. But we hope you will want to join us once you have got to know us!

I am a staff member.  Can I be a member?

Because members have a role in running our charity, it is not possible for staff to be members.  But all staff can be supporters!

I attend a Branch.  Am I a member?

You are a valued part of our ENABLE Family, but you will only be a member of ENABLE Scotland if you have signed up to be a member with us directly – its easy, do it here

I get information and advice from ENABLE Scotland.  Am I a member?

Only if you would like to be!  If we have helped you and you would like to stay in touch, you can choose to sign up to be a member or a supporter of ENABLE Scotland – you decide!

I am not sure if I am a member already!

Don’t worry!  All members have a unique membership number, and a membership card if we have their address to post it out.  If you are still not sure, call us on Family Connect, and we will check for you!
