The Ferret is a co-operative that is funded by its members. 

However, we recognise that people on low incomes may wish to get more involved with The Ferret and access our full archive of stories. 

To this end, we have a limited number of 12 month sponsored memberships, which are funded by our Gold Subscribers. 

These enable people on low-incomes to participate as full members in the co-operative.  

To qualify, you should be in receipt of state benefits, a student or retired and receiving pension credit.
