We really want to make our work in nature as accessible to as many people as we can, so we've decided to trial a new 'tiered' pricing system that a few community based organisations use pretty successfully, and which hopefully might enable people who have small or no incomes to attend, whilst still covering our costs. We've decided to trial offering three different prices - one for unwaged, or very low income folk, one for waged folk and a 'generosity' price for those who would like to cover the shortfall for someone attending who would otherwise not be able to afford to come. Happy to discuss people's individual requirements if they are not quite met by this scheme.
Second, we're offering a sibling discount where any additional siblings / children living in the same household go half price. This will also apply to registered child minders who would like to bring a large group along. Accompanying adults and under 2's still go free on all our family sessions.
We've decided to try make our 'Changing of the Seasons' family events donation only, so people can put in what they think the session was worth / what they can afford and still participate.
We really hope this makes the sessions more affordable and accessible for folk - particularly for those with more than one child. We are not aiming to make large amounts of money from any of our sessions, just cover what it costs us to be wherever we are, pay our staff a fair wage and cover resources and planning time so we can hopefully provide you all a great quality service.
Prices for each activity are listed next to the descriptions on the relevant pages.
