Membership process

All new members will apply to join SFE at the associate member level and will pay a one off joining fee of £135. This will give them access to the Older Client Care in Practice (OCCP) Award. There will be full guidance notes on how to complete the Award. It contains the full syllabus and all the support material.

All new members must aim to complete this within 8 weeks of joining. Further details about the OCCP Award can be found here.

Once you have passed the Award, you will be able to join SFE as an associate member. The cost of this is £120 for the year pro-rata-ed. You will be invoiced for the appropriate membership fee and once payment has been received your membership will be activated.

Before you begin the registration process, please read the SFE Code of Practice (on the next page) as it is at the heart of everything we do and all members of SFE are required to comply with our Code of Practice.
