When registering for this class the client agrees to confirm eligibility according to status as unemployed, in receipt of benefits etc and is told that they must be willing to produce evidence of their income status on visiting the centre.
  • Specific classes are offered on the weekly timetable 3 times per week for targeted groups such as teenagers, recovering addicts and the elderly. These are charged at a reduced rate between £5 and £8. These will be programmed on a half termly basis so that we can reach different demographics.
