How to get a CSRA Google account

Google Apps isn’t free for us; whilst we’re a voluntary organisation, we’re not a registered charity. We can’t afford to give everyone who volunteers for us a Google Apps account, so we restrict access to our senior team. If you think you should have a Google Apps account, email us at

If you can’t have a CSRA Google Apps account, don’t worry; we can still share documents and email with you if you sign up for a free Google account.
