Paying for your membership

Our new system means there are more payment methods available, making the membership experience more convenient for you. When choosing your preferred method from the list below, please consider how much it costs the charity to process your payment.

In advance of your renewal date, we will send you confirmation of the amount to pay and ways to pay.

Once you have paid, we will send your new membership card in the post. Depending on the payment method you use, you will receive your membership card in 10 to 28 working days. 

Direct Debit or Continuous Payment Authority are the fastest and most secure ways to pay for your membership every year. Once set up, you don’t need to worry about your renewal as we will collect the money automatically from your bank account or debit/credit card. To set up these payments please go to Membership Self Service Portal or call our Membership Helpline on:

    • 0800 307 7773 (UK – free)
    • 1800 911 936 (Republic of Ireland – free)
    • +44 (0)207 191 1091 (overseas - full rate)

Renew online using our membership self-service portal at Membership Self Service Portal . You can pay for your membership, change your payment method or update your personal details, including your contact preferences.

Receiving your Renewal notification by Email

Members can receive their renewal notification by email by selecting this contact preference in the Membership Self Service Portal.

For those members who have opted-in to receive email renewal notifications, we will issue you an email with the relevant information in advance of your membership expiry. 

Members that have not opened the email will receive a follow-up renewal letter by post.
