SDSS has 2 types of membership: Full and Associate

Full member organisations are Disabled People’s Organisations that support people to access SDS.
These organisations are run (governed) by disabled people, for disabled people.
Associate member organisations support individuals to access SDS. They are not Disabled People’s Organisations but they are not-for-profit.

Here is what we offer our member organisations…
