Scarf has an ever-growing membership, with currently over 90 families from the New Forest area who are members of Scarf.  We always welcome new members to our group.


over 100 families


including around 200 children

How To Join

To join Scarf, families must live within the boundaries of the New Forest District Council and have a child/young person (aged up to 25 years) with a disability or additional needs.  Please click here for a map of the area that Scarf covers.

Family Membership is £25 per annum and renewable each January – new members can join at any time during the year.  

This gives you access to a wide range of subsidised activities  – very often the yearly membership is recovered in a single family day outing! We do make a charge for each activity, and information on activities and charges are detailed on our website calendar and individual activity programmes, which are emailed out to all members as soon as they are ready, and published on our website too.

Concessions Fund

We have a concessions fund available to those experiencing financial hardship – do please apply, in confidence ([email protected], phone: 07874 221249, or approach one of our Committee Members) if you have genuine difficulty with accessing Scarf activities due to the cost and would like to access our hardship fund.

Because we are a parent-led organisation we ask that a parent or carer accompanies their children to events (except Youth Club, Multi-Sports and Scarf 2 activities).
