Become a member

You want to join VSSN as an individual member. Joining VSSN costs between £35 and £120 per year depending on your income.

By joining you'll get these great benefits:
  • A subscription to the Voluntary Sector Review journal
  • A discount on entry to our day conferences and research annual conference
  • You'll belong to a network of like-minded individuals who care about voluntary sector research

I apply for membership of Voluntary Sector Studies Network. I agree to support the aims of VSSN.

Subscription and payment

Subscriptions are based on the academic year (1 October - 30 September).

Because you are joining after 1st July, you can choose whether your membership is backdated to cover the current year (up to September 2022), or covers the next year (up to September 2023)

If you select the current year you will receive all issues of Voluntary Sector Review published since October 2021, but you will need to renew membership in October 2022.

Refund policy

Payments will be confirmed by email. You have a legal right to a cooling-off period: you have the right to cancel your membership and receive a refund within seven days of this confirmation being sent.

At any time you may contact to terminate your membership or update your address details.

Existing member sign up
