What are the benefits of membership?
Membership of the ITP Support Association mailing list brings you:
The Platelet, our quarterly journal, access to our 'ITP Friends' counselling volunteers, further information on living with ITP, treatment and the latest research, through our numerous free booklets and factsheets covering items such as insurance and Schools.
A free ICH alert card in case of a bleeding emergency, access (through the Association) to our medical advisors for difficult conditions, concession ticket price for the annual ITP Support Association Conventions featuring visiting ITP specialists, and the opportunity to voice your opinion in occasional optional surveys to gather data on ITP (some from pharma agencies offer payment to participants).
How much will it cost
The annual UK subscription fee is £10 per calendar year which covers the printing and mailing costs of your info pack and quarterly issues of The Platelet. For those living outside the UK the annual subscription fee is £15 per calendar year to cover overseas postage costs.
Membership subscriptions are due for renewal on an annual basis, you can also select a recurring membership plan which will renew automatically.
We welcome donations!
General donations will be used to continue our daily work of providing information on ITP to patients, and to fund much needed research.
Although we invite donations and welcome fundraising events to support our work, we do not bombard our members with begging letters or emails.
Who can join?
Anyone with an interest in ITP (whether patient, past sufferer, parent, family member, or health professional) can join our organisation which is the only registered charity for ITP in the UK (Charity Reg no.1064480).
Will my name be passed to other organisations?
Certainly not. Our mailing list is confidential and will not be disclosed to any other organisation.
