ASID was established over 50 years ago and is still committed to the ideals that led to its creation to improve the quality of life for people with an intellectual disability. It is a strong and vibrant association comprising people working or studying in the area of intellectual disability, organisations providing services to those with intellectual disabilities and people with an intellectual disability and their families or carers.

Membership of ASID provides you with access to invaluable information, resources and the opportunity to develop contacts to better inform and equip your organisation to provide the best quality service to those with intellectual disabilities. We believe that this work has never been more important than it is today and ASID membership provides the opportunity, through a united society, to influence developments in the area of intellectual disability.

Any person or organisation who subscribes to the aims and objectives of ASID is eligible to join. In order to meet varying needs, the Society maintains two membership categories.

These are: Organisational – Gold, Silver and Bronze, Individual and Individual (Concession).
