We’re committed to paying our facilitators a fair rate for planning and delivering these workshops. We’re equally committed to offering our online workshops on a Pay What You Decide basis, to make sure anyone who wants to can take part. We limit capacity for all our workshops, so that everyone in each workshop has the chance to interact with the person leading it. This means that, to make our workshop programme sustainable, we can only offer refunds up to seven days prior to the event.
