A brief tour round some of the benefits of becoming a Makaton member

All membership models are a 12 month subscription paid annually. Funds we receive support the Charity in developing the scope and use of the Makaton Language Programme. The Charity is committed to enabling all who need Makaton to access the programme. If you have some great ideas on what you would like to see available within the membership, please let us know:

All Makaton Membership types are classified as Informal Supporter Members of The Makaton Charity, where Supporter Membership is defined as an ‘informal membership’, who may be called a ‘member’ but who are not a company member of the Charity entitled to vote at general meetings.
