Thank you for enquiring about becoming a part of what makes HER Breast Friends great – our membership!
Applications are welcomed from women and men who are currently undergoing treatment for breast cancer as well as long-term survivors and those who are living with metastatic breast cancer. Family, friends, and colleagues of those affected can also become members, as can supporters who would like to contribute to the Charity.
Members play a vital role in our organisation and also determine who sits on our management Board of Trustees.
This statement on membership is taken from the HER Breast Friends Membership & Beneficiaries Policy and aims to ensure that any membership will benefit the charity. A full copy of this policy is available in the Charity’s office.
Eligibility for Membership
Membership will be open to those who are over eighteen years of age and have been affected by breast cancer or individuals wanting to contribute to the Charity. Membership is not an automatic entitlement, and any decision regarding the acceptance of a membership application ultimately lies with the Board of Trustees.
All members must agree to support and uphold the aims and objectives of
HER Breast Friends and work towards its vision and mission in accordance with its values and are approved by the Trustees.
In accordance with charity law, we will keep a register of members and their contact details, however this information will never be given out to a third party, unless required to do so by law.
All members must complete a membership application form and agree that information taken from it is held on a database for the purpose of membership administration.
Members are responsible for informing the charity of any change in contact details or circumstance.
Membership of HER Breast Friends is not transferable.
We will keep in touch with all members at least once a year to invite you to attend the Annual General Meeting.
You may also be contacted throughout the year to be informed of any events or news that might be of interest to you. If you do not wish to receive any of these mailings from us you can ‘Opt Out’ by informing us in writing.
We take photos at various events which may be used for publicity. If you do not wish your photograph to be taken please inform the photographer at the event.
We hope that being a member of HER Breast Friends will be a worthwhile experience, and if you have any comments or suggestions to help us improve our services, these would be very welcome.
