Have a look at our membership! Organisations apply to join as Partners, and are formally presented with a Cross of Nails as a recognition of their commitment to reconciliation projects. Schools join as ‘ICONS’ – International Cross of Nails Schools. Friends have a less formal involvement with the Community or have not yet completed the process of joining.
