The Wainwright Society is linking with the Youth Hostel Association (YHA)

As a Society we are very keen to try to encourage a younger age profile to join the Society and we see this as one way of promoting this. The YHA has over 200,000 members in UK. Our initial links will include:

  • Our new Society Brochures and application forms will be displayed in a wide selection of Hostels throughout the Lakes, along with copies of Footsteps.
  • We have organised a discount for Society Members to use YHA accommodation in all Cumbrian Hostels at a low price and without having to take up YHA membership - more details can be found by clicking the following link Member Discounts
  • We will publicise YHA events that may be of interest to members on the Forum, and, where appropriate, via our website. Similarly the YHA will help promote Society activities.
  • We will promote each other’s organisation at various shows that we attend.
  • We will share links on Facebook and Twitter.
  • We will look to include items of interest about either partner in our regular publications.

We have set up a separate YHA ‘Board’ on our Society Forum to highlight any activities of interest to members; this is a sub-board under the ‘General’ heading.
