Free subscriptions for members on maternity, adoption or shared parental leave

Accord members who take maternity, adoption or shared parental leave may be entitled to a subscription free period of up to 12 months.

Applications must be sent to Accord before the period of leave starts, and members must read the scheme rules to check eligibility before applying.

Those who are eligible for the free period will still be able to use our services and member benefits whilst on leave.
