How do I join a Group?

What happens if the group I want to join is full?
You can go on a waiting list. If there is a strong demand we will try to set up another group.

What is the cost of attending a Group?

Do I get a refund if I cannot attend a meeting?
No, the charge is for the term however many meetings you attend.

Can I go to a meeting of a group to see if it suits me?
