Who can join?
Anyone who wishes to support and benefit from TDF can choose to become a member of TDF. Our membership consists mostly of adults, children and families coping with disability and chronic medical conditions, Carers, NHS staff and other health professionals and social service workers.
We have a code of conduct that helps us run our service smoothly and you will be asked to agree to that as part of your membership conditions.
TDF currently has 750 members who are actively using TDF’s complementary therapy service. Thank you to all our members for supporting us.
How much does it cost?
£25 per year for disabled people, their carers, families and NHS staff
£30 per year for non-disabled people.
Please be aware that TDF is a charity that gets no statutory or healthcare funding. TDF relies totally on donations. Donations help TDF ensure it can provide this much-needed therapy service to all disabled people, their families, carers and NHS. It costs TDF over £30 to deliver a treatment. Every donation helps and every donation is gratefully received. Please give generously if you can. TDF appreciates your support.
