With sixteen  years experience under our belts we decided to review our membership criteria. There has been a strong feeling that the services we offer have always been open to anybody regardless if they are a member or not. So the question has been asked do we actually need to continue with a membership scheme. After all membership offered little extra and we did not want to bombard people with special offers and other gimmicks. What we did find is that rather than becoming a member people prefer to make a donation.

Against this background we  decided that membership would cease from 1 October 2014. As always our full range of services would remain open to all and we will continue to gladly accept your donations. As a totally volunteer run organisation we are able to plough the vast majority of donations into providing our services with the remaining funds given over to administration.

Now in 2020 we can look back at this decision which clearly was the right one as the number of people we help has grown year on year at a very healthy pace ensuring that we are open to all. Donations continue to come in being always welcome as they help to keep us operating. So if you can help support our work please do!!
