@Harry_Cameron, I am not sure folks use forums like phpBB anymore with facebook groups and google groups around. One thought I had, which is probably not an option but it is doable, is to setup Windows Server, use IIS instead of Apache, setup an Active Directory environment, use PHPBB3 with LDAP authentication, and use OSTicket with LDAP authentication. http://wiki.univention.com/index.php?title=Cool_Solution_-_Setting_up_phpBB3_with_LDAP_authentication The issue with this is, you will have to manually create the Active Directory accounts, there is no Sign Up page for this. But with minimal coding experience you could do something like that. Otherwise definitely find a coder to do it for you at a cost.
