Our Membership

Who Are Our Members?

To qualify for membership of Branching Out you need to be a volunteer or a member of the workforce.

Only members are entitled to attend the Annual General Meeting.

In addition we have two groups who qualify for membership:

  • Carer Guardian Forum
  • Service User Forum


Both these groups have an allocated member who consults the group and votes on their behalf.

What can the Membership vote on?

At Annual General Meetings the membership can vote on the following:

  • Re-Appointment of Accountants
  • That the Trustees be authorised to set the levels of auditor’s fees
  • Accept the accounts
  • Voting on re-appointment of Trustees


In addition the membership will be asked to vote if Branching Out has a Special Resolution or Odinary Resolution.
