The Dickens Fellowship, founded in 1902, is a worldwide association of people who share an interest in the life and works of Charles Dickens (1812 - 1870). Its objectives are "to knit together in a common bond of friendship lovers of the great master of humour and pathos, Charles Dickens", to spread the love of humanity, to campaign against those "social evils" that most concerned Dickens, and "to assist in the preservation and purchase of buildings and objects associated with his name or mentioned in his works". In 2005, an additional objective was introduced—to promote the knowledge and appreciation of his works.

Dickens Journals Online gratefully acknowledges support granted by the Dickens Fellowship in 2007-9, and its ongoing encouragement.
