Membership of Friends of St Helena is open to individuals of any nationality, living in the UK and elsewhere, who support the society's aims. 

Membership Fees: 

These are paid annually on a per household basis, on the anniversary of the date of joining the Society, as follows:

  • £20 for households living in the UK
  • £10 for households living at St Helena
  • £30 for households living elsewhere
  • £350 for life membership, wherever applicants live

Membership is on a household basis, the subscription fee being the same for a given household whether one or more members attend our meetings.  Our magazines are distributed and members-only website passwords/usernames are allocated on a household rather than individual member basis.  Life members are normally classified as individual members.  All subscriptions must be paid in UK pounds sterling.
