Who we are
What we do


If your council is not a member of APSE you can enquire about membership using the form below. Once a council is a member of APSE we do not limit the numbers of contacts within the council who can receive APSE information and advice, such as our briefings service, access to network queries, advisory groups and even our area based support services, such as networking and events.   You can read all about our service using our service directory.


How much does it cost?

APSE operates on a not-for-profit basis so our membership costs are kept as low as possible. Our fees are based on population size and council type and each area of APSE charges a small fee which support more local activities or activities that are related to UK Governments administrative areas which includes Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the English regions  of Southern, Northern and Central.
