ECF Forum / Ask the Director

From today the ECF Forum is no longer in operation. All threads from the forum have been saved, so if you wish to access any of these you can arrange this by contacting

Ask the Director

An ‘Ask the Director’ button is now located in the left sidebar of the website. You may have noticed that this has been the case for a few weeks already. The reason for this is that we wanted to run it live for a time to iron out any teething problems before we made a full announcement. We are now happy it is running as intended, hence this announcement, and the directors are looking forward to answering your questions.

On clicking on the button you will find a form with a tick-box selection of  ECF directors, which ensures your question goes to the director best placed to answer your question. We undertake to reply to your question within 5 working days. If it is not possible to provide a full answer within this time-frame, perhaps because the question is complex or all the required information is not readily available, you will receive a reply explaining this within the time frame which will include an indication as to when you can expect to receive a full answer.

We intend to publish on the website, in anonymised form, some of the questions and answers we receive as we think that would be useful to the users of the website. It is envisaged that from this and other sources we will develop a FAQ page for the website.
