We think it's important that community groups like this are open to anyone who would benefit from them. With that in mind we want to avoid as much as possible anyone being put off by cost. If you would like to get involved but would find the cost hard to manage, don't hesitate to be in touch and we'll see if we can offer you a concessionary rate. Equally, if you're already a member but are going through a difficult change in circumstances, don't be shy to ask for a concessionary rate.
