How I can be a member?

Membership is as simple as meeting with the Regional Co-Ordinator

over a coffee about ACRATH and what we do.

We invite you to attend a couple of meetings to meet our other members, and if you decide you would like to join, a more formal nomination/acceptance process is carried out.
