Membership is offered to organisations which operate in Bexley and have:

- A bank account in the name of the organisation with at least 2 signatories who are not related
- An up to date list of trustees/committee members
- A recent set of accounts that have been audited or independently examined (if you are a very small or new group, we will require a simple set of accounts – please contact us for support if needed)
- Safeguarding Policy and Equalities policy – we can assist with developing these if you do not currently hold them
- Either 2 references from people within other voluntary, community or statutory organisations who know your work and/or for a member of our team to visit your project/activity
Organisations that do not have the above requirements are offered support to achieve them if needed.
