Membership is confined to organizations only, and not individuals. Any organization, working with a clear mandate in Disability work, and fulfilling a set of criteria set forth in the constitution of NFOWD, and approved by the General Body, is eligible for membership of NFOWD.

NFOWD started its journey in 1991 with only 22 members and now boasts a membership of 230 organizations across the country, which includes local, national & international organizations.
