The SCS is a registered charity and can reclaim membership and donations under the government’s gift aid scheme. If you are a UK tax payer, we can receive 25p for every £1 of your membership fee. This money makes a real difference to our society. It allows us, for example, to offer bursaries for post-graduate students at our annual conference and to subsidise one-day seminars. For your membership and donation(s) to be eligible for Gift-Aid you must pay an amount of income tax and/or capital gains tax for each tax year (6 April one year to 5 April the next) that is at least equal to the tax that the SCS reclaims on your membership / donations in the appropriate tax year. If you qualify, please fill in the gift aid declaration form below and return it with your membership form.

Unfortunately it is not possible to subscribe on-line to the Society. Registering for the annual conference includes one year’s membership of the Society, and many members renew their subscription this way. If you are not attending the conference, but would like to become a member of the Society, please download the application form and send it together with a cheque payment of the membership fee.
