The National Associate Membership Scheme

You can enjoy all the benefits of HASSRA if you currently or have ever worked for the Department of Health & Social Care or the Department for Work and Pensions or one of their executive agencies or contractors working on departmental business. You may even be able to join as a National Associate Member. Eligibility now includes NHS Staff and anybody who works in the same place as any qualifying employees.

See the National Associate Member Scheme Rules for a full list of eligibility criteria.

To apply for National Associate Membership please complete this online application.

How Do I Obtain My Membership Card?

We are in the process of moving to a completely digital platform and plastic membership cards are no longer available.

Members will be able to download their new digital card following the launch of HASSRA Live. This will be from September 23 for HASSRA Y&H and brand new members, followed by all regions on October 21.

If you require your membership number to participate in a HASSRA event or activity, or a card to access one of our membership benefits before your digital card is available, please email us and we will be happy to help.
