Small organisation membership €50


Thank you for thinking about joining NALA.

It costs €50 to join as a small organisation.

NALA small organisation membership is for organisations operating at a local level. 


Small organisations include for example:

  • Adult literacy centres;
  • Youthreach;
  • National Learning Networks;
  • Community Training Centres;
  • Schools;
  • Town and city libraries; and
  • Community and voluntary sector organisations (smaller non-profits).


When you join NALA you will receive:                                                             

  • One email a month - the NALA Newsletter. This will keep you up to date with literacy and numeracy issues and our campaigns.
  • A 50% discount for attending NALA Conferences where we charge a fee. This is for the Family Learning, English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) and Numeracy conferences. Once you have joined you will pay €30 instead of the non-members price of €60.
  • The opportunity for students in your education centre to gain QQI accreditation through the NALA Distance Learning Service’s website Please note you must also fill in a registration form for this. Contact Caitriona at for this form.
  • An invite to make one application to the NALA Student Development Fund to promote student development locally. You will hear about this fund through the NALA Newsletter.
  • An invite to make one application to the Better World Books Fund. Again you will hear about this fund through our NALA Newsletter.
  • A 10% discount on our plain English editing and training service.
  • Our annual report and two issues a year by post of our Literacy Matters magazine.
  • Free promotional material from time to time (posters for National Adult Literacy Awareness Week, public relations support).
  • Your organisation can put forward resolutions (for example on what you think we should do work on), nominate people to our Board and have three votes at our Annual General Meeting.
