Use our secure PayPal facility to subscribe to Sound Sense or renew your membership with quarterly payments from your credit card.

Once you've set up your PayPal subscription successfully you need do no more. Your membership is effective immediately your payment is confirmed, and we will collect your subscription payments automatically each quarter so that you continue to benefit from Sound Sense membership. We will email you, normally within a day or so of your first payment, with more details of your new subscription.

Prefer to pay by Direct Debit?
To join Sound Sense and make quarterly subscription payments by Direct Debit, please download and print the Direct Debit form below. Complete the form with your bank account details, signature and date, and then post to: Sound Sense Ltd, 6 Mill Cottages, Aylesbury Road, Wing, Leighton Buzzard LU7 0PE. Please note that we must receive the original paper copy of your form: photocopied, scanned and emailed forms will not be valid.
Renewing an existing subscription?
At the same time as you take out the subscription, email us at membership@soundsense.org to tell us, you're an existing member so that we don't sign you up twice!
Not in the UK?
Sign-up below is available only to those based in the UK. If you're based elsewhere in the world you can still pay with your credit card, but contact us first for rates, saying where you live.
Things to note

If you're entitled to insurance cover, then that starts immediately your payment is confirmed (some PayPal payment methods take a few days to "clear"); you can also contact us for information and advice immediately. Some services, including issuing you with a password for the members' area of the website, take a week to ten ten days to activate.

If you want an insurance certificate you have to ask us for it - they are not issued automatically

Membership is for a minimum period of a year and then runs yearly. If you do decide to cancel at any point we cannot refund any outstanding portion of your subscription. We normally take fees quarterly for your convenience, but we reserve the right to ask for yearly payments, or to refuse applications altogether.

We will only know the email address you use for your PayPal account. If that’s not one you use regularly you must email us here as soon as you subscribe otherwise we have no way of contacting you!

Member benefits for organisations

We offer three categories of membership for organisations, all with different benefits. The table below shows what you'll get so that you can select the right category of membership for your organisation. Please get in touch with us if you would like any further information about organisation membership - we'll be happy to help.
