Do You Need a Concessionary Rate?

  • Want create site? Find Free WordPress Themes and plugins.

    We strongly believe that our membership should be open to everybody who might benefit from it. We do not want to turn away people, because they do not have the resources to pay for the services we offer. Although we receive no funding to help us to reduce the membership fees, we are committed to supporting all families and therefore subsidise the concessionary rates ourselves.

    We therefore offer a concessionary membership rate of £25 for families who need it. This drops to £12 after the first year.

    To qualify for concessionary membership, applicants must be in receipt of one or more of the following means-tested benefits:

    • Income Support
    • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
    • Pension Credit
    • Housing Benefit
    • Employment Support Allowance

    Concessionary membership is also available to:

    • Families who are fostering one or more children or young people who are felt to have high learning potential, in order for them to be able to provide the support that they and their foster children need
    • Students over the age of 18 who are in full-time education

    To apply for concessionary membership, simply:

    1. Scan and email, or photograph and email a copy of either your latest benefit statement (valid within the last three months) or the letter approving this benefit for the period applied or some other proof (e.g. of fostering, attendance at a full-time course) to amazingchildren@potentialplusuk.org
    2. On receipt of this evidence we will email you back with the concessionary code to use when applying for family membership via this website. This code will reduce the payment to £25.

    If you do not have access to email, please copy and post your evidence, and send to:

    Membership,
    Potential Plus UK,
    Challenge House,
    Sherwood Drive,
    Bletchley,
    Milton Keynes,
    MK3 6DP

    together with a contact email address.

    All information will be held in confidence and shredded on completion of the application process.

    Please note, because we recognise that circumstances may change from one year to the next, concessionary membership is only available for twelve months and must be renewed again the following year using the above process.

    If you are not in receipt of any of the above benefits but feel you have a special case requiring a reduction on the full membership fee of £125, please write confidentially to the Chief Executive providing your reasons, so that your case can be considered (amazingchildren@potentialplusuk.org with Chief Executive in the subject box).

    If you have any queries, please contact the Membership Department on

    amazingchildren@potentialplusuk.org
    or 01908 646433
