Whilst there have always been requirements that clubs have had to fulfil to achieve member status, the introduction of the Entry Criteria ensures that initial standards, that are equal across the board, are applied in a clear and transparent process.
Initially the Entry Criteria will be undertaken via the completion of a self assessment submission. Dependent on the content of the self assessment, a site visit should follow, along with any further requests for supporting information as required.
If your club is interested in applying for full member status you will need to register your interest by completing the self assessment form below and e-mailing it to Nia Butler firstname.lastname@example.org
