Adding a little Extra to our Membership

Tuesday, October 15, 2013 - 16:15

Many positive changes to our Membership have already taken place for us over the last 18 months and we have seen a huge increase in demand for our engagement services, especially from those Members who have low incomes or are unfunded and pay no Membership fees.

To help continue provision of free services to these Members we are introducing Membership Extra.

We have just added some new information about our Members, the work we do and what impact it is having. For instance, did you know that 61% of our Members provide their vital services with less than £10,000 income per annum? These Members are the ones who our Engagement Team spend most of their time supporting and the very members who need Consortium the most!

There is some really interesting information in the impact leaflet which we think really reflects just how diverse and far reaching our Membership is - but don’t take our word for it see for yourself

So what does this mean? That some of Members, those who make up the 39% with an income of above £10,000 will be invited to pay double their Membership fee.

By paying double the standard Membership fee Members will be directly supporting those smaller grassroots LGBT organisations by ensuring we can continue to deliver support to them for free.

We recognise and understand that our Members unrestricted funds are tight, but we want to look towards our own sector to see how we can collaborate to support small, new and emerging LGBT enterprises to thrive and survive.

This is our Members chance to invest in the sector – to ensure that small groups that offer vital services on very little can continue to access support from our Engagement Team.

We have produced a leaflet highlighting the impact we have as an organisation, which we hope will help our Members to understand the importance of us charging Membership fees, you can find more information on the impact of our work here
