Why Join SAIF?
Becoming part of SAIF is not just about becoming part of an organisation that dedicated to promoting and safeguarding the interests of independent funeral directors within the UK. It is also about giving you the chance to tap into a range of tailored resources specifically geared towards helping you develop your own business, and to release the full potential of your staff through training and distance learning. SAIF is there too, for those times when you need access to professional advice and assistance should you need help in resolving more complex legal, taxation or customer care issues. Many of these are available on-line through this website, accessed through your own unique member ID and password.
On the lighter side, there is an active social programme of meetings and conferences that take place around the country that you are welcome to participate in. Meet other professionals, share experiences, and find out how others have dealt with problems like yours. Take time out to have a little fun and combine business with pleasure!

SAIF Membership Requirements
Full members of SAIF are all independent funeral directors who agree to follow a strict code of practice.
Membership enquiries are welcome from any independent funeral director. For full details of membership contact us for a membership application pack on 0845 230 6777.
We endeavour to process membership applications as quickly as possible. Once the application form has been completed and returned to the SAIF Business Centre, together with copies of relevant paperwork, the application is initially publicised in the next available edition of SAIF Insight with a premises and paperwork inspection being organised.
Subject to no valid objections being raised by SAIF members and a satisfactory report from our premises inspection then the application will be approved at the next meeting of the SAIF executive and management committee meeting.
Become an Associate Member
A similar process takes place to the application process for full membership. The key difference is that no premises inspection is needed for associate membership and the information required with the application is substantially less.
We are working with our associate members to provide greater joint marketing initiatives to invite the growth of their businesses especially in relation to the amount of work they do for the independent sector.
For more information on the specific benefits of being an associate member of SAIF please contact SAIF Business Centre on 0845 230 6777.
