To help make sure we provide the right support to members of our community you will need to sign up to be a member to use the services we have available. All you need to do is fill out a simple form - you can pop in to see us at Blacon Beacon, check out our opening times here. Once you're signed up your membership will last six months.
We want our services to go to people who will benefit the most, so we do have questions we ask about your circumstances to make sure you are eligible. The answers you give will be treated in strict confidence. Our Manager may talk to you about the form, if there are questions we need to ask.
To become a member you will also need to pay a weekly subscription of either £5 (family package) or £3 (single package) which we will usually ask to be paid by direct debit (there are exceptions to this, so please discuss this with us if it will be difficult).
Unfortunately we're only able to offer membership to a limited number of people at any one time which is why membership is only available for six months. This means we can help as many members of the community as possible, but don't worry if at the end of your six month membership you wish to sign up again, we can discuss this with you towards the end of your membership.
