Help us to help the planet by switching from paper to email communications

Set My Preferences

But it's your choice

It’s important to us that we communicate with our members in the way that you want to be communicated with, so there will always be the option to carry on receiving paper communications if you wish. 

Making a positive impact

For every VDS member who makes the switch from paper to email for their service communications, such as policy renewal information, we will plant a tree with the support of Eden Reforestation Projects so together we can work with local communities to restore forests, strengthen biodiversity and help mitigate climate change.
