Contact Us by telephone

If you know the person that you are trying to reach, and you are unable to email them we recommend that you call them directly. Almost every member of the team will have a mobile number at the bottom of their email signature which you can use to contact them during working days/hours.  When they are unavailable your call will be diverted to voicemail and you can leave a message.

If you do not have the relevant staff contact details, do not know who to contact and cannot use email, please telephone us on 020 8742 3032.

Our telephone hours for contacting Head Office are:
Monday-Thursday: 09.30 – 15.00, Friday: 09.30 – 14.00, Saturday-Sunday: closed.

We are a small team working from across the UK, and we may not always have staff physically present in the office to answer your calls. When we are unable to answer your call we have an answering service to record messages received on the main office number. These messages will be dealt with in turn during office hours and forwarded to the member of staff best able to respond to you. You can speed this process up by contacting staff members directly.

We would really appreciate your help to make this process efficient and in that way allow us to support as many of our members as possible:

  • If you have to call us and leave a message please only leave one message – repeat messages to multiple staff members may only create confusion and won’t make our response any faster (especially if we aren’t open!)
  • Please be aware of our opening hours – we recognise it can be frustrating if we aren’t able to answer your call but we will respond as soon as we can.
