Welcome to the Companions of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta. We are an all-volunteer force delivering the charitable works of the Order of Malta in Great Britain. Our mission is to practise our faith and to practise charity.

Get Involved

Volunteer with us

If you’ve read about What We Do then you might be interested in helping out with one of our projects.

The easiest way to get involved is to contact the coordinator of the Companions group nearest to you. You can find all the contact details for regional coordinators on the Contact page.

Become a Companion

We don’t just need volunteers — we need members!

As a Companion, you can give your time to any of our many projects – joining a group to help feed the homeless, volunteering in the Order’s care homes, coming on pilgrimage with us to Lourdes or Walsingham.

Or you can simply do your bit by subscribing as a member to support our work or just by assisting with your prayers.

In the event of an international emergency, Companions will be notified immediately so that they have the opportunity to assist with the Order of Malta’s relief efforts. All donations go directly to support this, with little or no money wasted on charity operating costs.

Indeed, the Companions have almost no overheads and operate entirely on voluntary effort.

How to join

To apply to join the Companions, please fill out this application form and return it to the Secretary either by email or by regular post to the address on the form.

Please note that cheques should be made out to BASMOM COM, not to Hospitaller Ltd (COM). We are working on getting the form updated!
