We know that living in London, what some are able to consider ‘affordable’ simply isn’t for others. As a Community Interest Company, we are set up so that any money we make goes back into supporting the organisation. So our courses are priced according to what we need financially to keep the project going and cover our running costs.
However, we’ve always wanted to find a way to discount our prices for those that need it but balance that with what we need to make to keep the workshop going. So for those that want to join one of our courses or access the workshop, but aren’t in a position to currently afford it, we’ve set up a *Concessions Club*. The Concessions Club offers free course places when our courses aren’t fully sold out, and affordable bench access to the workshop.
Who can apply:
You will need to have an email address, and be in receipt of one of the following:
- Pension or Savings Credit
- Aged 65+, with a household income of under £16,000
- Working Tax Credit
- Income Support
- Jobseeker’s Allowance
- Employment and Support Allowance
- Disability Living Allowance or Personal Independent Payment
- Incapacity Benefit
- Universal Credit

- Child Tax Credit and have a household income of under £16,000
Then simply email email@example.com with a scan or picture of your documentation proof, and you’ll be added to the club.
Free Course Places – how it works:
If you’ve registered with your documentation, you’ll be added to the Concessions Club email mailing list. If a course or induction place becomes available one week before the start of the course, you will be sent an email with the dates and times of the course. Free places will be allocated on a first come first serve basis, unless you have already attended a free place on another of our courses in the last six months, when others will be given priority.
If you’d like to come and use the workshop for your own projects, you can also book our woodwork or metalwork benches for £5 as a Concession Club member. To book email in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org. Bench bookings are subject to availability.
