Free subscriptions for members who take maternity or adoption leave

If you’re an Accord member and are due to go on maternity/adoption leave – make sure you let us know. You’re entitled to a subscription free period of up to 12 months! But first, have a read of the rules below to make sure you’re eligible…

Accord offers a subscription free period of up to 12 months for members who take maternity or adoption leave.

The offer is open to members who have paid their subscriptions up to date and have been a member of Accord for at least 12 months.

If you have been a member for less than 12 months, your free subscriptions will commence on the 1 year anniversary of your membership and end when you return to work.

To apply for a free period, members should send an email to:  info@accordhq.org.

The email should include:

  • Full name
  • Membership or Employee ID No.
  • Workplace
  • Email address to be used whilst on maternity/adoption leave
  • Contact phone number to be used whilst on maternity/adoption leave
  • Date maternity/adoption leave starts

The application should be accompanied by a confirmation email from the member’s line manager.

Applications should be sent to Accord before the period of maternity/adoption leave starts.

If an application is received after the period of maternity/adoption leave starts, no retrospective refunds will be due, but will apply to the remainder of the period of leave.

Before returning to work, members should send another email to: info@accordhq.org

This email should include:

  • Full name
  • Membership or Employee ID No.
  • Workplace
  • Date of return to work
  • Weekly hours

Members are still entitled to use our services and the member benefits whilst on maternity/adoption leave.
