Become a member

It’s easy to become a member of our unique WISH community! You can join as just yourself or spread the WISH word to your colleagues by joining as a Corporate member.

With nine regions across England and Wales, you can choose to join only one or even several – we are flexible to suit you.

Every one of our amazing regions hosts at least four vibrant networking member events a year. Becoming a member means you won’t be charged a penny to come along to these. What’s not to like?

All of our events are run by our friendly local Boards who always create a relaxed environment where members can get to know each other, share ideas and information, and widen their network.

Events are based on ideas and suggestions from members so content is always tailored to local members, with a focus on motivational and inspirational personal development themes.

Being part of our WISH community offers you a host of benefits to embrace and enjoy:

  • At least four networking events per year held in your chosen region
  • Special personal development and leadership events that focus on you and your progression
  • True ability to expand your support network and foster new business relationships and opportunities
  • Be part of our Community and our pledge to address the gender pay gap, support gender equality and encourage the next generation of talent in the housing sector
  • Raise your personal profile and that of your organisation
  • Keep in the loop with latest industry news, hot topics and ideas
  • Share knowledge, perceptions and good practice with other women like you
  • A helping hand to boosting your self confidence

Our Membership Types


We have six membership types! One of them is bound to suit you.

  • Individual
  • Individual (Multi-region)
  • Corporate
  • Corporate (Split)
  • Corporate (Multi-region)
  • Corporate Plus

Most of our members chose to focus on one region, as an individual member or a corporate member.

However, we offer discounts for memberships across more than one region.

A multi region membership will allow you to attend any of the events in your selected regions. The type of membership determines how many places you are entitled to at each event - all free of charge!

If it’s just you – an individual membership in the closest region to you is fine but you can select/choose other regions as well. If you select the ‘multi region individual’ membership we’ll deduct 15% from the total cost. Great if you live in one region but work in another or vice versa.

Our Corporate membership gives up to four members access to our events in one selected region and offers loads better value than buying four individual memberships.

We also offer Corporate memberships in more than one region offering four places at all the events in all the regions of your choice. Really useful if you have a few different regional offices. We’re generous so 15% will be deducted from the total cost if you choose this membership type.

Perhaps a Corporate membership split across two regions would suit you better. This allows up to two people to attend events in two selected regions. If you choose this type the fee will be calculated at 50% of the usual corporate fee for each region (London has a different fee to the others) plus a £24 administration fee.

If you have eight or more female colleagues who would benefit from being a WISH member, you could always consider the Corporate Plus membership which offers brilliant value of up to eight places at your selected ‘home’ region and up to two spaces at any other event across the UK. Also includes free posting to our jobs board.

VAT: Just to let you know, we are VAT registered from February 2020. All corporate and corporate plus memberships will therefore be subject to the standard rate. As an offer to our lovely individual members who we know may not be able to claim the VAT back, we have decided to subsidise the VAT so the individual memberships increase by only 10% after VAT is included until February 2021.
