Request to join the Transpire Closed Facebook group

This application form is your first step to joining a growing and welcoming community group based in Southend and the wider community beyond. Our online membership has over 400 members. You should first complete this form and then request to join the group here:

If you join our group and your request is accepted there is an expectation that you'll post a brief introduction about yourself on the page. We don't expect a lengthy life story, but just something as it might empower other members, and peer support is crucial to how this group works.

All members must abide by our rules and policies around behaviour and providing a positive and conducive attitude to the group.
The information you provide in this survey is used to help admins monitor who is joining our group. Questions regarding sexual orientation, gender identity and age are optional to the extent that you can simply answer "prefer not to say".

* 1. What is your gender identity?  Tick any that apply.

* 2. Please briefly explain why you wish to join Transpire?

* 3. Do you agree to abide by the groups rules and policies? We encourage people to come to our events to experience peer support, although we recognise this is not always possible. We discourage messaging other members, whom you have not met in person (unless it is an admin or committee member). The reason for this is to safeguard our members.

* 4. Your name - this should match the name we see when you request to join the Facebook group

* 5. Please confirm that you are not joining to promote or sell products and/or services.

* 6. What is your age? ( You can skip this question if you prefer not to say)
