Changes to membership

Exciting changes to SEWM Member Benefits have been launched, including important changes to membership processing and renewals.

Key facts:

  • Membership Pricing: The membership costs as of the 1st of April are;
  • Basic – £55 +vat
  • Plus – £155 +vat
  • Premier – £335 +vat
  • Social Value supporter – £535 +vat
  • Social Innovation Partner – £1335 +vat

This equates to a 5.2% increase to membership, remained same since SEWM launch. Price freeze for public sector bodies: Local Authorities, CCGs, NHS Trust, Emergency Services

  • Payment Options: From this point onwards, all Basic and Plus membership applications and renewals can be paid via PayPal only. This is due to the high costs involved in the processing of invoices.
  • Renewals: All membership levels will also start to be automatically renewed from this point onwards. If you do not wish to renew, we require written notification of this by no later than the end of month 10 of your membership. If you wish to continue your membership, you will be sent an invoice in month 11 or funds will be withdrawn from your PayPal account on your membership renewal date.

The updating and improvement of the services we provide to our members is a continuing commitment to deliver the best value for money for all in our network.
