Joining the NPAA is free and available to all UK police officers and civilian staff, including special constables and police volunteers. We also welcome associate (non-police) members including retired officers – click on the link for more information.

As a member, you will be granted access to the Police Neurodiversity Forum, a private web-based message board hosted by the NPAA. The forum is our online support platform: members can discuss workplace, personal and family issues, share experiences and offer advice in a safe and confidential environment. We welcome discussions around neurodiversity and anything else! The forum is searchable and also serves as a knowledge base, with information on the conditions we support and links to external resources.
