Become a Member

Partisan relies largely on membership fees to operate. Fees are set according to an income-based sliding scale. As well as supporting the space, membership gives you perks and a say in how Partisan is run.

We have 2 types of Membership – please select the one that suits you best.



Memberships are paid monthly or annually by direct debit. Please allow a few days for processing before receiving your slack invitation.

If you are unemployed, a carer or struggling financially, we can sign you up for a free membership. You can also apply for an organisational membership if you wish to sign up your group or organisation.

Simply email us – [email protected]
