Become a Member

Anyone can become a member.  Membership runs from January to December each year. We have a sliding scale membership cost of:

  • £3 for individuals
  • £15 for community groups
  • £25 for community groups plus four free volunteer DBS checks per year
  • £25 for funded voluntary groups
  • £35 for funded voluntary groups plus 4 free volunteer DBS checks per year
  • £45 for statutory organisations/private companies

To become a member, please download, print and fill in the membership form below and return it to us with your cheque made out to Adapt (NE).

People who use our transport services do need to be members to allow us to abide by community transport regulations.

If you use Dial-a-Ride and are not yet a member, you can pick up a membership form on all our buses – just fill it in and give it to the driver with your membership fee.

Membership not only gives you access to all of our services but also a voice within the organisation. We will send you newsletters a few times a year to keep you up to date with relevant news and updates.

We keep membership at a nominal rate and it allows us to maintain an up-to-date mailing list. We don’t issue membership cards, however, as we wish to promote open access we will be happy to provide information regardless of membership.
