New Membership Fees – September 2021

During 2020-2021 we reduced membership fees due to the financial pressures incurred by the pandemic. But to continue its work across the network and worldwide, Assitej UK needs to reinstate fees and gain new members. We are taking this opportunity to instate a new and fairer fee structure that responds more appropriately to people’s means.

Regularly funded organisations – £100 per annum upon completion of an annual survey – membership form

Project funded organisations – £35 per annum upon completion of an annual survey – membership form

Independent artists – £10 per annum upon completion of an annual survey – membership form

If you are a regularly funded organisation, we invite you to sponsor an artist by offering to pay their £10 annual membership fees. Due to the join-up survey, a valuable tool for monitoring activity across the UK, you cannot bulk buy online so please ask your artists to apply individually.

If none of these fees apply to you or if you require an invoice, please contact us on
