What should I do if I am not sure if I’m a member or want to find out my membership number and don’t have a Membership e-Card?

Write to membership@peoplesmomentum.com

 

How do I find my local group?

Check the Momentum Groups Map to see if there are any groups local to you.

 

What do I if there is no local group near me?

If there isn’t a group near you, and you would like to set one up, email us at groups@peoplesmomentum.com to request a group set-up.

We will then advise you of the viability of a group in your area and send you information regarding set-up procedure and best practice.
You may want to set up a group because you and others find it difficult to travel to your nearest local meeting (although there are often members of local groups who are only more than happy to offer lifts to those who have difficulties getting to meetings).
So to begin with there may be only a handful of members in your area who want to set up a local group; that’s fine, smaller groups may become part of a larger regional umbrella group.
