You are welcome to apply to join Families Australia. We have over 800 Members covering every State and Territory, as well as in urban, regional, rural and remote areas. Our Members operate in a diverse range of fields, such as community and family support work, program management, disability, research, grandparenting, children’s services, counselling, youth work, and research. Our Membership is comprised mainly of organisations as well as some individuals.
There are two categories of membership: General and Associate.
To become a General Member, your organisation must:
General Members of Families Australia have voting rights and are able to put forward nominees for election to the Board of Families Australia.
Two types of General Membership are available to your organisation: General Membership, where the national organisation only is a member and General Membership Plus. General Membership Plus offers reduced membership rates to General Members that have affiliates. An affiliate is defined as being one of the following: a member association, a subsidiary or an individual office bearing the same public trading name as the General Member. Each affiliate will (subject to Families Australia Board approval) become an Associate Member of Families Australia in its own right and receive all the usual benefits of Associate Membership.
Associate Membership is open to any individual, group, alliance or organisation who demonstrates support for the aims of Families Australia.
