Membership Availability Update: Support Only

Due to increased demand for HOPE’s services and the impact this has had on our current waiting list, HOPE will continue to accept applications for Support Only Membership at this time, while Full Membership, with group access, will be closed to new applicants until further notice. Our Support Only Membership (£30 per annum) is still available to any families in the North Lanarkshire area seeking autism support.

Support Membership includes private support meetings with trained staff, advocacy and support with any meetings or proceedings with which families may need assistance, training opportunities, and events/private forums for HOPE members. This remains available to anyone seeking HOPE’s support for a small fee of £30 per year.

HOPE has taken this decision to allow us to focus our attention on accommodating those families who have already expressed an interest on taking up full membership with us and are currently on our waiting list. We hope to open up the group waiting lists sometime in the new year.

We thank everyone for their support and patience at this time. This is an exciting time for our organisation and all decisions are made in the interest of improving standards and practice in supporting HOPE members.

Please contact the HOPE office with any queries and keep an eye on our website for further updates.
