We do fantastic work and we have several big projects under way this year. We need you to support us, so we can support you. Membership is just 28p a week! What does that get you? It won't buy you a packet of crisps, but it will give you access to a large number of resources in the members' forum, the Participation publication and much, much more. Learn more
