The Scottish LGBTI Police Association welcomes you to join us. We exist because we have a substantial membership base that supports our Vision and Objectives. The Association General Board are all Full members of the Association, elected by the membership at our AGM to run the association on your behalf and represent all members. Anyone who is a full member can put themselves forward to join the General Board.
Our Association is governed by a constitution, membership entitles all full member access to General Board meetings, a vote at our Annual General Meeting, nomination to the General Board, invitation and alerts to events as well as a variety of membership services and special offers. Membership is available to all serving or retired police officers and staff in Scotland and whether you identify as LGBTI or not. We are inclusive of all protected characteristics.
In addition to full membership, we offer 'Associate Membership' for individuals and organisations who are not eligible for full membership, however, support our work (select the link below the Full membership form).
Membership is free.
