Membership

Families United Network (FUN) is a membership charity, and you will need to be a registered member before accessing any of our clubs or services.  Membership is free to all families who are caring for a child or young person with an additional need or disability aged from birth to 25 years.

The first step is to complete a  membership form, and photo consent form; and then return these completed forms along with proof of disability (e.g. letter from GP, specialist, Disability Living Allowance Award or PIP etc).   If you would like a hard copy of these documents sent out to you by post, please call us on 01582 420800 or email info@familiesunitednetwork.org.uk

If there are other children or young people living permanently at the same address as the disabled child, they can also access our Family Services.  We do require evidence that each child lives at the same address, such as a child benefit letter, tax credit award letter or anything else showing the child’s name and address.

Once they are registered members of FUN, families can begin accessing our clubs and activities.  By ‘family’ we mean mum, dad, siblings, grandparents, nominated carers and the disabled young person themselves.  Unfortunately we are not able to cater for friends, neighbours, childminding children or other extended family.

Further information on all of our services can be found under the ‘What we do‘ tab above.

FUN has a behaviour policy in place to ensure safe play for all of its members.
