Since its launch in March 2011, 41 organisations have withdrawn from the Responsibility Deal. At 9 September 2013, there were 559 Responsibility Deal partners.

Some individuals; such as academics or expert advisers, are involved in the work of the Deal's networks in a personal capacity. They cannot sign up as partners. One such advisor, Dr Nick Sheron, resigned as co-chair of the alcohol network in July 2013.

In July 2013, UK Health Forum withdrew as a member of the alcohol network's core group however, they remain signed up as a partner.
