Noticeboards

Noticeboards

Welcome to the Noticeboards section. We get a lot of requests to put messages on this site and here’s the place where they go. Messages can only be posted by people who have accounts on this site – so if you’re inspired to put a message up then first Sign up. These are the categories that messages are displayed within.

If you’re wanting to place a message or reply to one that’s already posted then you must either register or sign in. We restrict noticeboard messages to one per person at any time and your message is part of your profile (click “Your account” then the Edit tab). We reserve the right to move the message to another category if it seems more appropriate.

Places needing Members

Places needing Volunteers

These are notices placed by existing UK communities that already have a full entry on this site. If you want to place (or remove) a message in this section on behalf of your community then you first need to navigate to your entry. Once there you can log in to the Content Management System. If you’re an existing community that we don’t know about then e-mail us to request an entry. We will require some information and a postal address from you before we consider giving you a listing – take a look at other entries to see how they have answered questions and selected particular icons. Once you have an entry then you’ll be able to log in and keep it up-to-date.

Developing Communities and Groups

These groups are at many different stages of development. Some may be a bunch of people with an idea, some may be at a very advanced stage – perhaps about to purchase a property and looking for people with capital and commitment. Bear in mind that much of the information may be aspirational. We would expect Developing Groups to be looking to set up within the UK; have reasonably thought through ideas; and to have a fair number of prospective members already. So if your group doesn’t match these criteria please put a notice in the People forming a Group section described below.

E-mail us to request an entry as a Developing Group. We will require some information and a postal address from you before we consider giving you a listing within this section. Once you have an entry then you’ll be able to log in and keep it up-to-date.

People forming a Group

This noticeboard is intended for individuals, small handfuls of individuals or families that would like to find others to get something going. People are likely to be at a very early stage and so not big enough or thought-through enough to go into our Developing Groups section. We would always urge people to consider whether they really want to “reinvent the wheel” all over again. Existing communities are often looking for new members (take a look here) and there are usually several forming groups who’ve already got some way down the line here.

Properties might suit Communities

These are mostly notices about properties that might be suitable for communal living. Sometimes there may have been some kind of community resident there in the past or an existing group all want to leave at the same time.

People needing Communal Places

These are individuals or families who would like to join a group. More likely it will be an Existing Community but they might welcome an approach by a Forming Group.

General Noticeboard

Anything else that might be of interest to those who have an enthusiasm for communal living. As a registered user of this site you can place a single message on any of these last four noticeboards. You can edit, update, replace, move to a different noticeboard or remove your notice from public view at any time by logging in to your account. If you’re not already registered then sign up now. If you placed a message at some time in the past then your e-mail address will be recognised.
