Featured Video of the week: How Long Would Society Last During A Total Grid Collapse?

Support Me on patreon

Start Prepping UK is dedicated to delivering quality content, not salesy bullshit. I didn’t start this site to sell ads, or to sell you £500 Navy SEAL Tactical MOLLE Socks. I started it to provide a preparedness resource that was more about education, common sense, and protecting ourselves and our communities.

That said though, I do still need to be able to pay the site hosting bill, so if you think what I’m doing is valuable, chip in a few quid and I can keep doing it!
