Below are the different criteria for types of Voscur membership.

Full membership:

Full membership is open to all community and voluntary groups who:

  • Are based within the Bristol city boundaries and deliver services to individuals or communities in Bristol.
  • Support Voscur's core values.
  • Are formed by people who have come together of their own free will.
  • Are a response to issues regarding the quality and equality of life in Bristol.
  • Are accountable to their members.
  • Are independent (ie are not a national organisation or part of a national organisation)
  • Are not for private or personal profit.

Individual membership:

Individual membership is for individuals that are not part of an organisation/group but who support Voscur's core values. 

Associate membership:

Groups that work more broadly than in Bristol’s VCS (for example, public sector groups, national organisations or groups based outside Bristol) can also join Voscur as Associates.

Supporters:

Organisations and individuals that aren't part of the voluntary sector but have an interest in supporting or working with Voscur and its members can become Supporters. Becoming a Supporter enables individuals, volunteer, service users and charitable, public and private organisations to keep up to date with local issues and initiatives and support cross-sector collaboration. 

All applications for membership are subject to final approval by the board.
