Membership of the British Assistive Technology Association

BATA is continuing to develop: finances are sound; membership is growing, and our website is ranked highly by Google. We are increasingly in touch with key figures in Parliament. Our comments on reports and legislation are reported in the media. We are building up evidence and contacts to help us campaign effectively.

Our strength is in combining top British AT companies with Public and Third Sector organisations. Working with professionals expert in A.T. across education, health and the workplace.

We have now introduced an Ethical Practice Statement for all new members now and for all renewing members from January 2013.

Join now and help us change lives for the better!

Membership of BATA is open to anyone wanting to promote the use of Assistive Technology for anyone who has a disability. This includes users, carers, professionals, charities, local authorities, schools, colleges, universities and companies working in this field.


Membership entitles the member to have voting rights within the Association, and the right to be elected to the Council. There will be further benefits for full membership which will be clarified as membership grows.

A full member should have the BATA logo on the home page of their website with a link to the BATA website. The BATA website will show the members logo, a short description of products and services, and an outward link to the member's website.
