Member Benefits

Why Become A Member of the AFA?

Membership is open to anyone who has albinism, or is touched by albinism in some way.  One of the key purposes of the Albinism Fellowship Of Australia is to provide support to people with albinism and their families, friends and communities.  We have members from all over Australia, from a wide variety of backgrounds, each with their own stories and experiences of living with albinism.  Becoming a part of our community has been a life changing experience for many of our members who had previously had very little, if any interaction with other people affected by albinism.

We endeavor to keep our membership fees as low as possible by fundraising and sourcing funds from both government and non government organisations to help with events, resources and general running costs.

Membership entitles you to:

– Receive information packed newsletters and emails each year (preview one of our newsletters here) featuring articles on the latest research related to albinism, what our members are up to, book and product reviews, the latest news on adaptive technology and much mo
