The CFG regions
You can choose to join CFG as either a London & Southeast member or as a member of one of the other regional groups. These have been introduced since 2001, with the aim of providing regular members’ meetings and other events for those who do not have easy access to London.
Aside from London & Southeast, there are currently three regional groups:
• CFG Northern for the area around and north of Manchester and Leeds.
• CFG West Midlands for the area around Birmingham.
• CFG Southwest & Wales for the area around Bristol, Exeter and Cardiff.

How the membership fee is calculated
Membership fees are staggered in bands according to charities’ incomes. Different rates will also apply according to whether you join as a London & Southeast member or as a regional member. This difference in fees aims to ensure fairness and value for money to members. The difference in London and regional rates reflects the greater frequency of meetings in London at this time.
