If you are giving WWT membership as a gift for a special occasion, such as a birthday, simply use the date of the occasion as the membership start date. Whether you choose to have the pack sent to you or the gift recipient, we will dispatch it as soon as possible. When setting the start date, please note that it may take 2-4 weeks for the pack to arrive, but your gift recipient will still be able to visit in the meantime. We’ll also email you a certificate straightaway to forward on to your gift recipient or to pop in a card.

Membership can be taken out at any time of year and will be valid for 12 months. WWT will notify you one month before your membership expires. We hope you will continue to support WWT because long-term support helps us to better plan for the future, respond to ever increasing environmental challenges and continue to save wetlands and wildlife for future generations. If you take out a membership as a gift, we will activate the membership at a time you choose, enabling you to buy Christmas gifts, for instance, in advance.
We always strive to get your membership cards and/or pack to you as soon as possible. Membership processing times do vary throughout the year and you will be advised of this during the sign up process. Temporary membership cards/emails are always issued, allowing you to start using your membership straight away. Usual turn arounds times are around 4 weeks, this maybe longer during holiday periodsPlease contact the Supporter Service team if you have any questions on 01453 891198 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes, but you do need to be the person purchasing the membership and you need to be a UK tax payer. Unfortunately, due to the gift aid regulations, WWT is unable to claim tax on gift membership. More information is available on the HM Revenue and Customs website.
Yes, WWT has many members living overseas. You can join online by credit card thus avoiding difficulties with currency conversion. Unfortunately WWT cannot accept direct debit payments on bank accounts outside the UK and Northern Ireland. If you are purchasing this for yourselves, you will still receive the quarterly magazine ‘Waterlife’ and we look forward to welcoming you at our Centres when you visit the UK. But most importantly you are supporting our conservation work around the world. If you are living abroad, gift membership makes an ideal present for friends and family living in the UK and can be easily ordered online.
