Do I still need to return the Gift Aid form if I join online? 

Yes. It is essential that you return the leaflet as a way to claim Gift Aid on Urdd membership. This contribution enables us to continue to offer activities and events. If you join via the website as a parent / guardian, you can fill in the Gift Aid details at the same time. 

I have enrolled online, when will I receive my membership package? 

It can take up to 4 weeks to process your membership, particularly during peak periods. If you join via school then the school will receive the membership packs and distribute to pupils.
