DSWA membership is available to everyone.  There is an active network of branches covering much of the country, from the Isle of Skye, through Central Scotland, Cumbria, Yorkshire, Wales and down to the South West of England.  Branches carry out a range of activities during the year, including training days, courses and demonstrations as well as meetings and social events.  Details of branch events can be found under the section for branches.

Membership runs January to December and there are no part payments.  However, if you are joining for the very first time after the financial year end (September onwards) your membership will cover the remainder of the current year and the whole of the following year. Subscriptions are available for the following categories:
