As a not for profit organisation we are constantly looking for opportunities to extend the work we deliver and increase the opportunities we offer for all to take part. If your organisation is interested in assisting with our funding please get in touch or call Keith on 07940235645

Similarly, we are always looking at how everyone can take part- if you are experiencing financial hardship or have a low income there may be ways in which we can assist. Please send an email toĀ  and we will look at what opportunities there are to assist with course fees.
