About LightAware Membership

LightAware membership is a great way to support us financially, keep informed of our work, and get more actively involved should you wish to.

As a member you will be invited to attend and vote at our AGM and be given the opportunity to take part in our campaigns. Your involvement will help us to understand more about the impact of the changes in artificial light on all of our health and to steer our activities to where it is most needed.

There is of course no obligation to get more involved. You can still keep you up to date with what’s happening through our twice yearly members’ magazine, with the added satisfaction that you are supporting our vital work, campaigning for safe inclusive lighting for all.

Other membership benefits include access to the members area of the website and access to a members only Facebook group for those able to manage a screen.

We would be delighted if you would join us – an increase in regular income however small helps us plan for the year ahead and expand our activities. With your support we will be able to do so much more. 

Membership fees start from £2 a month or £23 a year. If you are able, we would be grateful if you would consider donating more. International members will receive membership communication by email unless printed copies have been requested which may incur an additional shipping fee. 

If you have any specific questions regarding membership get in touch with us at members@lightaware.org and we will be pleased to help.

Can I join if I am under 16?

No, we don’t currently allow under 16 memberships but you can ask a family member or representative to take out membership on your behalf.

What will you do with my personal information?

Protecting your personal information is important to us. For information about how LightAware protects and stores your data, please take a look at the Privacy Policy on our website. A copy of this will also be included in your welcome pack. We are registered with the information commissioner under the General Data Protection Registration legislation (Organisation Name: LightAware, Reference number: ZB325577).

My membership pack hasn’t arrived, what can I do?

Your membership pack should arrive within 2 weeks of receiving your application. If it still hasn’t arrived after that time please let us know by emailing us at members@lightaware.org.

How are my membership fees spent?

Membership fees and donations help us to support people affected by light and lighting and to fund research and campaigns to raise awareness. A proportion of membership fees go towards providing support and advice to members, publishing our members’ magazine and maintaining our website. However, our spending does not reflect the totality of our work as much of the work we do is undertaken by unpaid volunteers.

What if I can’t afford membership fees?

We understand that some light-disabled people may be under financial hardship and will consider individual circumstances.  Please get in touch with us if this is the case at members@lightaware.org

I am not from the UK, can I still join LightAware?

Yes you can, at the same rate as UK members. However, in order to keep our administration costs down we would normally send membership information to international members by email. If you do require your membership pack sent in the post please let us know. We may add an additional charge for shipping which will vary depending on location.
