You can join DPA as an individual, a family member, or as an organisational member. Individual and family membership is free. Check out the different types of memberships below.
If you don’t have an impairment you can become an associate member of DPA.
However when a member of your family has an impairment and is under the age of 18 years, the family is entitled full membership.
All other families are associate members. Associate members have the right to speak but are non-voters in DPA activities.
You can join DPA online or you can download a DPA membership form and post it to us.
Organisations within DPA take their place alongside disabled members to debate issues.
Organisations of disabled people (e.g. those run and led by disabled people) have full membership rights while organisations for disabled people are associate members.
