Organisational membership criteria
If your organisation would like to become a member of the CJA, it must:
- Be a not-for-profit organisation.
- Share the CJA’s vision of a fair and effective criminal justice system.
- Support the CJA’s mission to achieve sustainable, systemic change, through the collective power of our membership network.
- Agree to the CJA holding its current campaigning and policy positions.
- Agree to support and contribute to the work of the CJA.
- Agree to abide by the CJA’s procedures for developing policy positions and signing off outputs.
- Agree to abide by the conditions of membership set out in the CJA’s Memorandum and Articles of Association.
- Not pose an unacceptable risk to the reputation or operation of the CJA.
Our Board of Trustees considers each application at their quarterly meetings. Meeting the above criteria does not guarantee membership.
The CJA does not receive public funds in order to maintain its independence. Alongside support from trusts and foundations, membership fees are an important source of funding for the CJA to carry out its vital work. We are keen that CJA membership is set at an affordable rate for your organisation. The fee you pay for membership will depend on your organisation’s turnover. The current annual membership fees are:
|Annual Membership Fee
|Less than £50,000
|£50,000 to £500,000
|£500,000 to £1,000,000
|£1,000,000 to £10,000,000
|More than £10,000,000
*These fees are reviewed by the Board of Trustees on an annual basis
