We’d love for you to join us. 

Becoming a WAF member means joining a local group (your primary group). You will then receive regular updates about WAF activities and events, as well as other information you choose to receive. You can also choose a secondary group, should you wish to know about other events going on close to you. Our local groups are listed below. A map can be found here.

To become a member of WAF you will need to register here. Registering is very straight-forward, and you don’t need anything except a laptop, tablet or phone and 10 minutes of time.

Please be advised that a social worker will need to confirm your status as an adopter, or prospective adopter from stage 2 onwards. This is for security reasons. You can read the Terms and Conditions of WAF Membership here.
