After three years of using Patreon to help fund my project, I felt I’d become too reliant on a platform that’s growing increasingly dominant…and expensive!
So, during the lockdown of November 2020 — and in my quest to be independent from that kind of scenario — I worked out how to build my own membership platform, an environment which I feel is much more suited to The Lifeboat Station Project.
And here it is, The LSP Society:
JOIN THE LSP SOCIETY
Pledge whatever you’re comfortable with from £1 per month to unlock extra films, audio recordings, blog posts and online talks in the Members’ Area.
You’re in control of your membership — you can pause, delete, decrease or increase your pledge at any time.
NEW: LSP Society members also have access to the brand new social platform and app for iOS and Android devices!
The LSP Society app is:
- Our ad-free social platform;
- The best place to follow Jack Lowe’s coastal odyssey;
- An easy way to connect with Jack and other members;
- A safe place to contribute your own pictures and stories;
- My promise that none of your data will be shared with any advertisers or third parties, ever!
All pledges go towards the creation of the project and enable instant access to the Members’ Area and the app — members’ names will also feature in a special thank you page in the final book.
If you’re migrating from Patreon, please click here for a note at the bottom of this page.

Migrating from Patreon?
Thank you! I’ll be gradually adding the key posts from the last three years to the Members’ Area, which you can access when you create your new account for The LSP Society.
Your original rewards will be honoured, of course — The LSP Society should be considered as a continuation from Patreon.
