If you'd like to Help us promote Go then see our Help the BGA Page.

If you need some information then you can use our Contact Page to find out suitable contact names, phone numbers and email addresses. However, there are several ways of finding the information you need that we'd like you to try before contacting someone directly. The main ones are:

  • The most frequent items you need are probably options at the top of the page - click on them
    They're available on all except a very few pages
  • Use the Menu on the left if you're confident you know the section it might be in
    A right-facing triangle shows that there's another level of menu when you click on this.
    A circle means that this is the bottom level.
    A down-facing triangle indicates the menu hierarchy you're in.
  • Enter some likely terms into the Search box on the top right
    This will take you to a page of entries which then has some advanced search options which include restricting searches to various news categories and page types.
  • Use Google to search: specify site:britgo.org and add the search terms
    This will produce slightly different results to the above as a) it's slightly out of date, but b) indexes the PDF files we have and c) orders them differently.
  • Use our Site Index
    The BGA website index is not just a collection of links (often called an ‘index’) to sites other than the BGA's. It is a proper, human-generated index of all the material on the site. Its entries and subentries lead to specific information (no mere passing mentions) within the BGA website. It is maintained by Jochen Fassbender. More detail on the Website Index is here. Please note that it may be considerably more out of date than the two indexes above.
  • If you're looking for recently changed information then use the Latest Site Updates link
    This is a list of site changes organised by date update. You can sort it by by title or page type.
  • If you're looking for recent news then use the Latest News link
    This list is displayed in date order and you can sort the items by title.
  • If you know roughly when the information changed: use the Archive by month link
    This is a list of changed pages, organised by month.
  • If you know what the title starts with: use the Glossary link
    This provides an alphabetical index of page titles.
