I’m here to communicate a plan for the future of people who use this community. Anxiety UK are unable to continue to support this service for reasons discussed in previous posts.
Up to this point they have supported and moderated tens of thousands of posts/comments/questions etc generated from all of you. This community has been one of the most active groups across the whole HU network implying the most administrative resource too. AUK have have done their best to resource both the service and the responsibility for such a busy community.
Unfortunately it’s now not possible. But because of both the public and private messages we have received at HU, and the high activity within the community, we have decided to try to sustain a place for those of you who wish to continue sharing in HU.
The new community will be transferred over tomorrow (Tues 9th July).
- will not require you to do anything to join. You'll be there already.
- will have a new directory address and name - (www.healthunlocked.com/anxietysupport)
- will be administrated by HU staff and member volunteers (for the time being at least)
- will rely on the goodwill and understanding of the members of the community here to ‘live and let live’ with any difference of opinions between members. If we can't maintain this then the service will have to close.
This is the first group of its kind in HealthUnlocked so please bear this in mind. The questions, comments, and blog posts that you have all created will remain in the system attached to your profiles. The changeover will happen in this, the same week in which we are relaunching the whole website. It should go live tomorrow (tuesday) but there’s a chance (depending on technicalities) that it will have to be later in the week.
Either way we hope you will make the best of the community. And on your behalf we thank AUK and its staff for the support they have provided to generate the community in the first place.
