We’ve always had one thing in mind – to deliver the best classes to help all those who need it. But we understand that sometimes the ones who need it may struggle to afford it.
The value we provide through our classes is immeasurable. We’ve changed hundreds of lives with our classes, such as kids finding a new social life when home life becomes tough. There are many parents who struggle to afford the sessions but understand a child’s need for belonging to a club and learning discipline, respect and confidence.
Our vision is to offer a discounted membership to members who struggle to afford classes but need it the most.
What this is
We offer a discounted membership for select individuals to train in our classes. The discounted membership lasts for 6 months so we are able to rotate and offer the scheme to other members too. The funding is given to people based on an impartial group who vote with full confidence. The number of spaces that are offered is based on the funds that we collect and can vary. We will never publish those who are awarded the funding, but we’d always appreciate feedback to make the process better for everyone after! We also complete reports on the success of the scheme for internal use.
