Become A Member

Fawcett members are central to our power and influence. You underpin everything we do. From delivering strength in numbers to ensuring we have the funds to continue our vital work and campaigning locally, we simply can’t do it without you, the Fawcett member.

Join us

From as little as £1.50 a month, you will fund our work to help ensure women play an equal part in society. Fawcett contributes to policy and legislation on a range of issues, from giving our views on specific Bills to making policy suggestions.

We also have a number of local groups across the country; you can support Fawcett by working with these groups to take campaigns directly to your area. We will pass your details on to the local group when you join.

Members are responsible for electing the Board of Trustees. The Board leads the charity on behalf of members.

Why join Fawcett+?

Becoming a member of Fawcett + entitles you to:
