General Network Membership


The HEAR Network is an informal network of London organisations and community groups working to advance equality, fight discrimination and achieve social justice. Our network members range from tiny grassroots groups with no paid staff or premises to large national charities with their base in London, and everything in between!


There is no formal membership requirement for the Network, and members can withdraw at any time. Involvement can range from receiving our bulletins, news and email information, through getting actively  involved  by attending free training, events and workshops, taking part in research projects, presenting case studies and sharing learning with peers at HEAR events, right through to joining  the HEAR steering group, it’s up to you!


Simply email:


to join the network or find out more


Currently HEAR has more than 1000 members in the Network.


As well as charities and community groups, HEAR also has  many individual members who are ‘experts by experience’, individual equality campaigners or rights activists.
