“If my actions on the board inspire others to learn more, do more, live more; then my job is done.”

— Lorraine Morgan, Board Member


We’re not currently taking on new board members at this time though we will open up later this year. You can still sign up to be a shareholder though, and you can read about being a shareholder further down this page.

    Shareholder? (For more info on this, read on below)

    If you’re not ready to sign up yet but are still interested, leave your contact details and we’ll email you from time to time with news and updates. You can unsubscribe at any time.

      Short of time? Too busy but still interested? There is another way to get involved.

      Become a shareholder

      Being a shareholder of Melin entitles you to be involved in our activities and have a say in how we run our business.

      You will be able to attend our Annual General Meeting (AGM) and other meetings and have the right to vote at these meetings.

      You will also get the opportunity to attend local events organised by us and you will receive copies of our publications, such as the Annual Report, business plan and our quarterly newsletter.

      Who can apply?

      Anyone aged 18 or over may apply to become a shareholder (also known as a share member) except a person who has previously been expelled as a shareholder or an employee of Melin. We encourage applications for share membership from all sectors of the community. We will not discriminate on the grounds of age (if minimum age reached), disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation.

      How much does it cost?

      It costs just £1 to become a shareholder for life.

      To apply all you need to do is complete the contact form at the top of this page and select the shareholder option.

      And if Melin is not for you?

      There are lots of other fantastic board member opportunities across Wales with any of the other Housing Associations. Community Housing Cymru has many Board member posts on their website Come On Board Wales.
