We believe in developing a pro-active and engaged membership offering affordable access to information and exchange.  If you are considering applying membership, please make sure you have read through our "Types of membership" page. 

Please note:

  • Organisations wishing to become members of the network must apply for Applicant status initially. Organisations can apply for this below. Please note the application process may take up to 3 months. Applicant status may last for between 1 and 3 years, during which organisations must be seen to contribute to the work of the network (attend General Assemblies, contribute to the annual campaign and newsletters, etc.) and show a sharing of COPE’s mission and ways of working. Membership for Applicants will be considered annually by the Board and recommendations put to the vote for membership at the General Assembly when appropriate.
  • Individual membership is on an invitation only basis. Experts working in the field who are known by the Board are invited to become individual members.
  • Any individual or organisation working with or researching children of imprisoned parents and wishing to keep in touch with our work is welcome to sign up as an affiliate of the network using the form below.
