Membership and Subscription

We are a registered charity and as such rely on funding in the form of grants and donations. Subscriptions are a contribution towards the administration of the Club.

Membership subscriptions are made every three months (quarterly) by standing order on the 1st Jan, 1st April, 1st July and 1st Oct. Membership is open to children with special needs and their families who live in the local authority areas of Bristol or South Gloucestershire.

The quarterly subscription rate of £21 applies to each disabled child or young person and each sibling in the family that you want on your membership so that they can come along to activities. There is no need to pay for any child under the age of 3. We offer a reduced rate of £15 per disabled child/young person/sibling for families on a low income.

The questions below, alongside the evidence you send, will help the Trustees build a picture of your child’s needs and help us decide whether Special Friends Club is suitable for your family.

Please send copies of clinic letters, doctor’s reports or EHCP as evidence of your child or young person’s disability from at least 2 professionals to: or by post to SFC, 13 Banner Road, Montpelier, Bristol BS6 5NA.
