Running Your Local Group
(see http://wiki.ilovefreegle.org/Category:Running_Your_Group for all entries in this handbook.)
This section of the Wiki is aiming to provide you with guidelines, resources and some odd bits of hopefully useful advice for running your group. If you find something missing, please do add it yourself or mention on Freegle UK Central Group that you would like it added.

Basics of what constitutes a Freegle Group. This section has links to what we have all agreed are the basic elements of being Freegle.
Congratulations, you have joined the Freegle network. Now what?! Have a look at the links in this section which hopefully will give you some information and ideas.
During the day to day operation of your group, this section gives you ideas how to deal with items, members and issues that might be giving you pause for thought. Lots of examples of messages you can use are included.
Yahoo is OK, Freegle Direct is lovely but few of us know all the ins and outs of managing them, so this section has some guidance.
We have an app so group members can use Freegle via their mobile devices - explanations here!
Information on finding and looking after your team of volunteers is covered in this section.
Do you have a Cafe for your group? How to deal with other groups or agencies in your community? This section has some pointers for you.
This section will link you to pages which give information on how to go about attracting some local funding for your group.
The Norfolk and Waveney groups are not based on Yahoo or Freegle Direct, this section gives some information on that platform.
