If you have previously been a member of our old Groups & Forums – we will already have an email address for you and will have invited you to join the same Groups & Forums on the new system using that email address.

In order to be able to access the new Groups & Forums, you need to have a Google account registered with that same email address, and to be logged into your Google account.

If you don’t yet have a Google account registered please follow the steps below.

 

  1. Open the Google account sign up page
  2. Enter your name
  3. Don’t Click “I would like a new Gmail address” unless you want to create a Gmail account
  4. Enter your current email address
  5. Create and confirm a password
  6. Select your gender
  7. Add a mobile phone number
  8. Enter your birthday
  9. Choose your location
  10. Check your email and respond to the email from Google.
  11. Log-in to Google using the email address you just registered.
  12. Use the Groups & Forums

You will now see all of the groups that you are allowed to access. If you can’t see any group that you think you should be a member of, please contact the administrator

Notes:

Google handles all of the security that we need in order to run the Groups & Forums and all the steps you need to take are dictated by Google in order to ensure that security.
