All of our Facebook support groups are closed and therefore only accessible to members.

We would ask you to note that whilst our groups are a safe and secure place to rant and rave, please remember that all comments are the personal opinion of the individual posting and not necessarily the opinion of all members, or administrators.

Members offer advice from what is often their own experience.  Our members are not legally trained and we would therefore suggest that you check any advice before following it.

To request to join any of our groups, please click on the blue links or contact us via email (see our "contact us" page).

Please make sure that one of the Admins can send you a private message on Facebook as we will be unable to approve your request if we cannot message you.  If you have your privacy settings programmed whereby we cannot do this, please privately message one of us to enable us to liaise with you prior to approving your membership request.
