  • If your gross income is £701 — £1,100 per month, membership is £8 per month

  • If your gross income is £1,101 or more per month, membership is £10 per month

If you require assistance in relation to a problem pre-existing at the time of your affiliation, a one-off fee of £20 will be charged after your first meeting with a UVW caseworker.
