ANYONE OVER 16 is welcome to join the SPR – students, researchers in all disciplines, and members of the public from all walks of life.

Membership does not imply acceptance of any particular opinion concerning the nature or reality of the phenomena examined. The SPR holds no corporate view, and members hold a range of perspectives.  
If you are not ready to join just yet, you can sign up to our mailing list for news of SPR activities. Sign up to our mailing list only.
