The term clients can be very misleading. We see the people on our courses as being participants and not necessarily the clients. The clients for our courses are those who have a duty of care for people who are, or have been in, a refuge due to abusive relationships etc.
By that we mean participants will attend our courses at zero or very little cost, but the clients - local authorities, charities etc. - would carry the major proportion of costs.
Having said that, as a Community Interest Company, we also strive to achieve funding from other sources to enable some courses to be offered to those who need them most and not be restricted by financial ability.
