Yes. You will become a member immediately your completed monitoring form is received and your direct debit has been actioned. You will be included on the Patrol & Response Schedule and patrols will be available to you.
This means that ARMGB will only operate at what it costs to provide services. The monitoring fees provide the operating funds and it can plainly be seen that if, for example, 10,000 CIC members each paid their £1 per week monitoring then £10,000 per week becomes available. Our transparency might show it costs £1,000 per week for each patrol so 3 patrols would cost £3,000 per week leaving a surplus of £7,000 per week. This might normally be profit but ARMGB operates in such a way that it will be returned to fund community projects, these will shown in our annual accounts.
