Become co-owner of a new kind of independent public interest news organisation
Exeter Observer is published by Exeter Observer Limited, a Community Benefit Society which is owned and run democratically by its members.
Membership of Exeter Observer requires the purchase of a £1 share in the society and the payment of a subscription towards its running costs. The share purchase is included in the first membership payment.
Membership subscriptions are payable monthly or annually by direct debit. As the bank charges a fee for each transaction we invite all those who can afford to do so to pay annually.
Membership may also be conferred on contributors. This enables all those who wish to support us to be able to do so without there being a financial barrier to membership.
The standard subscription rate is £10 per month. Some members pay £15 per month to sponsor a membership at £5 per month for those on low incomes who cannot afford the standard rate.
Please get in touch if you would like to sponsor more than one low income subscription.
