Anyone is free to follow ANCR, which will give you access to most of our work and allow you access our research outputs, etc. Please be sure to click the “Follow” button right at the bottom of this page.

Membership of ANCR, however, is restricted to people who are actively researching care-leaving or care-leavers in Africa. Membership is open to individuals across the globe, provided you conduct care-leaving research in Africa. There is no membership fee. Membership will open up additional opportunities, such as being able to connect with other members, learning about in-service training and other development opportunities, etc.

Friends of ANCR are researchers doing care-leaving research outside of Africa or practitioners and others who are interested in care-leaving research even though they are not doing care-leaving research. Being a friend of ANCR allows you to follow our work and to support it, even though you are not doing African care-leaving research. Please complete the same application form.

After submitting your membership application, please also scroll down a little further and click the FOLLOW button to add your email address to our mailing list.
