Being a charity is a difficult business. Money is always tight and funding is becoming ever harder to acquire.
We have cash resources to help us operate, but to maintain the valued service provided by the Artrium we make a charge to attend and use the services. Consult the studio for costs.
There are also dedicated sessions for which we make a charge to cover overheads.
We try to raise funds whenever we can and at times we rely on the fantastic support from our members, their families and friends to assist us in supporting us.
There are various methods of having your membership funded by your Local Authority. This is called a Personal Budget or Direct Payment. We can explain this to you when you collect your membership form.
Alternatively, the Local Authorities Social Care Department will be able to answer any questions, you may have regarding Personalisation. If this is not possible you can also pay your own fees.
All memberships are valid for one full year. We will contact you shortly before it is due for renewal to give you options to change or amend your plan.
If you get a Direct Payment your Social Care officer will contact you to review your situation prior to renewing it. A full explanation of our Terms and Conditions can be found on the membership form.
