Become a Member

Membership is open to all and we actively encourage those from working class and socially excluded backgrounds to join. If you are unemployed, a carer or struggling financially then we can sign you up for free membership, please email us – [email protected]

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 also 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

Cooperative Membership  

Cooperative Members along with staff form our multi-stakeholder cooperative, meaning you’re now a legal owner of Partisan Collective LTD and have a direct say in how Partisan is run. You will be expected to attend meetings and contribute to the running of Partisan. 

Community Membership  

As a Community Member of Partisan Collective you’re helping give what you can afford to a non-profit social community space with radical values. We really appreciate your support and wish to reward that with some perks This is a more casual form of membership for those who wish to support us but not wish to be involved in the day to day running of Partisan. 

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

You can also apply for an organisational membership if you wish to sign up your group or organisation by emailing us – [email protected]
