FAQ If you’re a charity, why do you charge a subsidised fee?
Dignity Street Foundation is a Registered Charity (CIO) Number: 1177171 as a Charity we receive no Government funding to deliver our courses or support services. Therefore, sometimes we need to make a small charge that goes to help our Activity Based Costing (ABC).
Example, six sessions of mentoring/counselling cost the charity a minimum of £150.00 for each person.
Mental health and Well-being two day courses and support cost a minimum of £300.00 for each person.
We also have fixed overheads, electricity, broadband, phones, heating, insurance, volunteers travelling expenses Etc.
Regularly we review our fees and always try to keep the cost of courses and support services as low as possible.
By working with our charity, clients gain significant advantages; firstly, they benefit from at least 50% match funding towards any fees they would typically pay for our mental health services or support.
With the discounted fees clients pay, we reinvest 100% of the fees we charge to help, and support, vulnerable individuals and families affected by mental health issues in Wales. These are people whom our already stretched NHS services are struggling to help, that is why your support allows us to provide mental health services to help clients experiencing stress, anxiety, depression and burnout.
