What it means
to be a member

It’s a lovely feeling to be part of something, isn’t it? To know you belong to a family who looks after its own. Its quite a large family too, with over 55,000 members. But no matter how big we get, we’ll always be here for you.

Free membership with all our products

Take out any of our financial products and you’ll automatically become a member with access to Foresters Extras, our member benefits package.

Membership is about

more than money

From helping to cover higher educational costs, to every day dental and optical bills. Foresters Extras is our membership package which covers a range of benefits that makes a difference to people’s lives every day. In 2023, we gave back over £1.72million to our members in discretionary grants and charitable donations.

Thanks to regular social and community events, our members keep a busy diary. Coffee mornings, theatre trips, dinner dances, fundraising events… You can get involved with them all through our social branches.


Don’t just take our word for it

Why not listen to our members tell their own stories – and hear what Foresters Friendly Society has done for them?
