There is an overview of the SRP finances including a breakdown of how subscription money is spent in the Introduction to the SRP.
Abbreviated accounts for each year are included in the Officers’ Reports to the Annual Conference.
Full accounts are available on the Charity Commission website.
The subscription year runs from September to August. New members joining the Society after 1st January can pay half the full year’s subscription for that year.
Branches are entitled to reclaim gift aid on the portion of subscriptions that goes directly to the branch. There is a separate page of guidance here. You will need the information in the table above to calculate your nett subscriptions for retrospective claims.
Each branch has its own pages on this website. These usually contain basic information about the branch including its officers, directions to the venue, and the branch programme. You can have whatever information you like in your branch pages. Please send all updates to webeditsrporguk (webeditsrporguk) . If you like, you can edit your branch pages yourself.
If you host your own branch website, your branch page here simply directs the reader to your website. If you change the URL of your website, please inform webeditsrporguk (webeditsrporguk) .
Branch venues are also shown on a map, so even if you host your own website please inform webeditsrporguk (webeditsrporguk) of any changes to your meeting places.
Every branch has an email address like thisbranchsrporguk (thisbranchsrporguk) . Email sent to this address is forwarded to a real email address. Usually this is the branch secretary, but it can be anyone in the branch prepared to deal with email. If you wish you can nominate more than one person to receive such email. Please ensure that these addresses are kept up to date by informing webeditsrporguk (webeditsrporguk) of any changes, for example when a new secretary is elected.
In addition there is an email allbranchessrpsrporguk (allbranchessrpsrporguk) that you can use to contact all branches.
