membership

What is membership?

Trinity Community Arts is a membership organisation. This means people who have a passion and interest in our work can help shape what we do and how we do it. We know that our members are the foundation on which Trinity’s future is built.

Members include volunteers, participants in our community/ arts programme and local residents. Members provide us with feedback of our services. This feedback is fed directly to the board. The Board listens to feedback from Members and enact those views where possible. The team (at Trinity) are guided by the board and they deliver on the aims and objectives of the charity. Members sharing their views, skills and experience ensures we meet the needs of  centre users and the local community.

Is membership for me?

To become a member, you need to know and care about what Trinity does and:

  • Share a belief in the aims and objectives of Trinity
  • Express a real interest in and are willing and able to promote and support our work
  • Are legally eligible to apply for Membership

And, members must either

  • Have attended working group meeting or volunteered for Trinity in the last 12 months
  • Be connected to Trinity and the activities we do, but may not have direct involvement with the centre (so you may be a local resident, a parent of a child who attends a session here).
  • Or, actively participate in the community or arts programme. Perhaps you attend the weekly Hype Dance or Gerry’s Attic classes, or come down for Stay & Play sessions.

What is expected of me?

To become a member you’ll need to pay an annual subscription fee (this runs from Jan – Dec) Individual membership is £10 (concessions) or £20 (standard).

We will invite you along to our AGM where you will have the opportunity to share your views and you can vote board members in.

Legal stuff

As a voting (or paying) member you agree to contribute up to and no more than £10 in admin if TCA goes into liquidation (we are hoping this will never happen). You can find out more about legal stuff by reading our membership policy.

What do I get?

Members benefit from:

  • Our lowest discounted hourly rates, and to apply for potential discounts on other day rates
  • All fee paying members get access to our Trinity Community Initiative (TCI) scheme you can find out more about this and how to submit a proposal here.
  • If you host an event at Trinity we will promote it through our website and social media channels
