After three years of using Patreon to help fund my project, I felt I’d become too reliant on an increasingly dominant (and expensive) platform.
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
This is the place where you can get behind the next chapter of The Lifeboat Station Project now that my coastal travels have resumed following an enforced pause during the pandemic.
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.
LSP Society members also have access to the project’s dedicated social platform and app!
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!
Links to download the app for iOS and Android devices will be included in your welcome email.
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.
Furthermore, you’re in complete control of your membership — you can pause, delete, decrease or increase your pledge at any time.

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.
