We currently send out newsletters four times in the year.  They contain news about the Forum, and especially about
new research findings, surveys and upcoming events. 

The newsletter is sent directly to our members as soon as it is finished, and we post the previous newsletter on
this page at that point.  Forum members therefore have priority access, and this is a good reason to join!

We are very keen for everyone to submit material for the newsletter, especially about events you may be running
locally or regionally that might attract our members.  Submit material using the Send us your news form on the
Contact Us page.


If you have interesting photos, videos or ideas to share, you can also use our Facebook and Twitter pages.
