Member Organisations


Organisational membership is open to European-based public, governmental, private and non-profit organisations working with or for children of prisoners or who have been through a period of applicant status.

Network members are required to conform to the COPE way of working and continue to work actively for the well-being of children of prisoners.  The Board will consider other organisations with a regional or local remit doing significant or innovative work in this field as possible members.  Members actively participate in network operations and have the possibility of influencing network development.

Organisational members are voted in during the network Annual General Assembly on the Board’s recommendation.  Confirmed members have full voting rights at ordinary, exceptional and extraordinary General Assemblies.

Representatives of members organisations are eligible to stand as COPE Board Members.  Individuals put forward in this way would be expected to have attended at least two previous General Assemblies and to have demonstrated a commitment to, and understanding of, the ways in which COPE works.

Annual Fee: 120 Euros
