Membership Week 2014

“Live your beliefs and you can turn the world around.” Henry David Thoreau

The Howard League for Penal Reform needs your voice! Join us this Membership Week (17-21st November) to support our work.

Howard League members are vital to our work in campaigning for safer communities and a more effective criminal justice system.

In the past year, members have enabled the Howard League to continue to provide vital legal support to children and young people, as well as working tirelessly to progress our Books for Prisoners and No Children’s Super-Prison campaigns.

We cannot continue to push for real and lasting change without your help.


The Howard League for Penal Reform needs you!

Join us today and add your voice to our movement for change. Every voice counts and we hope that you will add yours.

Renewing your membership

If you want to renew an existing membership, please follow the same process as new members joining. We will know that you are renewing your membership.

We will remind you when your membership is due for renewal, but it is easier to set up a Direct Debit (monthly, quarterly or annual) as this means your membership is automatically renewed. Direct debit is also cheaper for us to process and gives you more flexibility. Find out more about Direct Debits 

It's really important to us that you renew your membership and continue to add your voice to our movement for change.

Gift membership

You can buy Howard League membership as a gift for someone else. Why not give something different this year?

Upgrade your membership

You can upgrade from a student or unwaged membership to a full rate membership, or increase your regular donation to give that extra bit of support to our work.

Change of circumstances

We want to ensure that everyone can join the Howard League as a member, and continue their membership. If your circumstances have changed but you still want to renew, please don't hesitate to contact the membership team on 020 7249 7373.
