Why Register?

At FoNS, we recognise that people want to use virtual resources in different ways. We know that some people just want to browse and so most of the Centre is freely accessible to all. However, we also know that other people would like to be kept up-to-date with FoNS work the opportunity to exchange, share and collaborate with others. We have therefore created two ways in which you can become more actively involved with FoNS through the Centre.


Friend of FoNS

FoNS sends out a once weekly email newsletter. Typically, it contains information about FoNS' work and our programmes, information about new things on the website, links to awards, bursaries and scholarships, reports and papers in other journals, events of interest to healthcare practitioners in practice development and a link to our own weekly blog. In order to receive the e-newsletter, you need to register as a 'Friend of FoNS'.

You can become a Friend of FoNS for FREE – registration will only take a couple of minutes. Click here and register today.


FoNS Associate

FoNS Associates can also receive the weekly e-newsletter but in addition they have full access to all areas of the Centre including the:

  • Useful tools and resources in the Learning Zone
  • Quick and easy email facility which facilitates networking and sharing with other Associates
  • Podcast discussions

There is a small annual registration fee of £40 to become an Associate. In return you will benefit from access to a wider range of resources but also have the opportunity to become part of an active community of FoNS Associates who can interact, share and learn from each other and contribute and influence the virtual Centre activity.

Registering to become a FoNS Associate will only take a few minutes. You can register and pay on-line using WorldPay. Alternatively you can pay by cheque or request an invoice.
