Frequently Asked Questions

Who do you grant membership to?

Membership of the Council may be granted to a natural person or an organisation who:

  • Agrees to support the Aims & Objectives of FCRC
  • Is engaged in actively pursuing the Aims & Objectives
  • Complies with any other rules or by-laws of FCRC
  • Carries out their work with no conflict of interest and complies with the Service Standards and Professional Conduct Rules


When will I be notified of the outcome of my application?

Membership applications must be approved by the FCRC Board. The Board meets on a monthly basis, and will review any applications received since the previous meeting. You will be notified of the outcome of the Board's decision within the week of the meeting. If you have already paid your membership fees, your membership will be activated immediately following approval by the Board. In some cases, applicants may be asked to provide additional information about their circumstances before a decision can be reached.

If you require an urgent response to your application, please notify us and we will try our best to assist:

I can’t afford the membership fees, can I speak to someone about that?

Our membership fees are determined by capacity to pay, based on the applicant's total numbers of hour employed (in ANY job or industry) per week. For our purposes,

  • Full time is assessed as employment (in ANY job or industry) for 20 hours or more per week;
  • Part time is assessed as employment (in ANY job or industry) for less than 20 hours per week.

We offer fee waivers to applicants who are currently not employed. We can also arrange payment plans for anyone having difficulty paying their fees.

Please contact us to discuss:

My agency will not pay for my membership fees. What should I do?

It’s FCRC policy to request payment for membership through the individual member. It’s then up to you whether you approach your agency for reimbursement or payment. Different agencies will have different policies about this.
