Membership of the NPAA is free and open to police officers, staff and volunteers, including special constables and PCSOs. We welcome personnel from all UK territorial and national police forces.

The NPAA hosts the Police Neurodiversity Forum, an online community where members can discuss workplace, personal, family and public service delivery issues, share experiences and offer mutual support, in a supportive and confidential environment. We welcome discussions and questions 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.
