Solace Membership

Solace is the most important national membership organisation for motivated public service professionals. We offer a remarkable breadth of cross-sector expertise, insight and experience in a confidential and collegiate setting. 2018 sees us make a major step-change into an inclusive future, with an entirely new membership structure designed to make it easier and more affordable than ever before to join.

These changes are driven by our fierce commitment to making sure you’re part of the strongest, most diverse professional cadre in public service. We want to extend access to membership as widely as possible within (and beyond) public service. Full details of the new membership categories can be found on this site, together with reflections on the experience of some current members. We look forward to welcoming you!
