We work hard to keep the details held in ESCIS up to date. Contact details change; new community groups start and old ones close.
Once a year, all entries listed are reminded by email to update their details. But changes can be made in at any time, to be reflected online as soon as possible.
Ideally all information should come directly from an officer in the organisation concerned. We need to confirm that information comes from a reliable source before we can update our records.
Each entry is associated with an account so you can log into the website and change your entry at any time.
Each account is connected to an email address associated with your organisation and for security reasons you can only update the entry yourself if you have access to this email address.
The username for the account is the email address to which the reminder was sent.
Your ESCIS account also has a password. For your security we will not send this password with your reminder email but if you do not know your password, you can reset it at any time (see resetting your password).
If you are unsure what account is associated with your entry please contact us and we can tell you.
Here are some answers to common questions
Adding a new entry
If you would like to add a new entry please review our inclusion policy and complete the add an entry form.
I do not know my password
Passwords have changed from the old website. We used to send your password with your annual reminder email. Due to security restrictions we are now unable to do this.
Fortunately, resetting your password is easy. See resetting your password below.
Resetting your password
If you have received a reminder email from us but do not know your password, it is easy to reset it.
Click on the login screen (https://www.escis.org.uk/wp-login.php), and click on the “lost your password” link.
This will take you to a new screen where you can request a new password. Enter your email address.
You should receive an email with a link to change your password. If you do not receive the new password please check your SPAM folder.
Remember, you can only reset your password if you have received an email from us. Your entry may be associated with a different email address.
