Any organisation can be a member of the Norfolk Community Advice Network. Membership is divided into two groups:

Accredited Members:

To become an Accredited Member of NCAN your organisation must hold a recognised accreditation for the area(s) of advice you provide.

  • Advice Quality Standard (AQS)
  • Specialist Quality Mark (SQM)

NCAN encourage organisations who deliver advice to become accredited. Please contact NCAN if you would like advice about this.

Affiliate Members:

Organisations that are not accredited as described above are Affiliate Members.

NCAN invites all member organisations, whether Accredited or Affiliate, to consider use of the NCAN Referral System.
