At SHARE, we have 4 different types of membership. These are designed to suit all of our borrowers, whether regular or infrequent, well off or otherwise. Our members of all types are what keep the shop open and thriving!

But we know choosing from several options can get confusing, so here’s a handy guide to choosing the right one for you.

Low Income

Price: £1 per year – 75% discount on borrows*

*Minimum base price for all items is 50p

Choose this one if…

  • You’re on low income and have proof of receipt of benefits.

You will be required to provide proof of receipt of benefits on your first visit to the shop.

Upon renewal you’ll be asked to provide new proof of receipt of benefits from within the last 3 months.

Choose this one if…

  • You’re more likely to borrow infrequently.

Our standard membership is pretty good value for money for those who borrow just a few times per year.

Choose this one if…

  • You really love SHARE and want to support us!

Our supporters receive the same benefits as standard members, but they’re individuals who have chosen to give us a very generous donation as well! We’re very grateful to all our subscriber members for their fantastic generosity. If you have some spare cash, want to support a community resource and/or we’ve been a big help to you, we’d love to see you become a supporter.
