Membership levels

At Connect, we want to meet the differing needs of our members, making sure members pay only for the benefits they need and want, and charging members more fairly according to the size of the school.

To do this, we now have four membership levels, each with different benefits, and we have changed the school size bands too. This ensures members who, for instance, only meet every few months are not paying the same as those who are very active and organise lots of clubs and events.

We are also introducing two new benefits:

  • Specialist advice from our insurance provider on managing major events
  • Connect as an intermediary for PVG membership applications.

Details of the new bands and benefits levels (1☆ - 4☆) are below. We are happy to answer any questions you may have on the range of benefits – drop us an email or call the office.
