1. Introduction to One Eighty Membership
One Eighty is looking to reach out and connect with as many supporters as possible within the community and beyond: people who share the vision for a future free of youth suicide.
As part of the commitment to promote suicide prevention, One Eighty wishes to engage and retain a membership database of supporters of the organisation. This formal process is the next step in being accountable for communicating to the stakeholders and further developing the organisation.
By formalising charity membership, the organisation is given a solid foundation of supporters. By creating a membership register, One Eighty can provide information and opportunities for it’s members, and allow these members to be a part of the charity’s decision-making processes.
