Member types

There are three main types of membership (see below).  All applicants must first become an Associate member, before they can upgrade to a Practitioner or Advocate member.

Please see our Membership Criteria Overview for Stakeholders V1.1 for further details on the type of members we wish to work with and how our membership process works.

Associate (non-trading) Membership – £50 

Associate membership is open to any organisation or individual that wishes to formally support RetrofitWorks or act as a non-trading stakeholder in one of our schemes.  There are no entry requirements, other than the desire and promise to support RetrofitWorks in the local community, to input into the design of one or more schemes.  Find out more, or sign up now as an Associate Member, by clicking here.

Practitioner Membership – £350  (one-off, not annual)

Becoming a Practitioner member allows your organisation to become a shareholder in the cooperative.  This entitles you to offer your services to customers and other members, and receive opportunities to price and win work.  You will also have a voting right, have the opportunity to stand on the Board of Directors, and receive a profit share of the organisation, or decide on its reinvestment.

Our Practitioner members are organisations or individuals working in the building industry, including, but not limited to; installers/contractors, energy assessors, architects, designers, project managers, and other refurbishment specialists. We carry out quality checks when installers join our cooperative, to ensure a high standard of workmanship.

For smaller organisations, the £350 is only charged once some work has been awarded to justify the price.

Retrofit Advocate Membership

Becoming an Advocate member allows you to with RetrofitWorks staff to support and deliver local retrofit activity, whether that be through formal lead generations, or informally by signposting householders directly to RetrofitWorks.

Our advocate members are organisations who want to support or drive local retrofit activity. We offer a variety of tools and commercial templates to access a single and locally sourced SME supply chain.

Advocate members could be these sorts of organisations but there may be more:

  • Community groups
  • Local Charities
  • Local Authorities
  • Housing Associations
  • Landlords
  • Estate Agents
  • Local Schools
  • Faith / Non Faith Groups
  • Manufacturers
