Who can become a supporter?

You don’t have to be a member charity to get involved with our work.

Our supporters are typically organisations operating in the health and medical research sector with an interest in the activities of the AMRC and our members.

Your support will help ensure we can equip our member charities with regular guidance and training, provide quality standards and carry out an audit every five years to ensure they’re supporting the best research and researchers. This in turn helps our member charities to deliver the changes that really matter to patients.

What are the benefits?

Our supporters have…


We circulate a fortnightly e-newsletter, called the Member Briefing, to over 1,000 people across the medical and health research sector. Supporters are featured in the e-newsletter when they join, and their events and news can also be included.

Opportunities to connect and collaborate

We hold regular events where our supporters (who receive up to a 60% discount rate) meet other key stakeholders in the medical research sector including charities, industry, government, public bodies etc. We also run several networks and groups with member charities and other supporter organisations to encourage collaboration and shared learning.

Access to resources

  • Access to a range of e-newsletters to receive updates on developments that may affect your organisation.
  • Access to our job circulation mailing to advertise your organisation’s job vacancies free of charge. In 2018/19 we advertised 266 jobs.

How much does it cost?

Fees are set on a sliding scale based on the supporter organisation’s annual spend on UK operations.
