We provide a range of services ‘free of charge’ to all our members plus an allocation of one-to-one support time to each organisation. Once members have used up their allocation of ‘free’ one-to-one support time (up to 14 hours in each financial year) we are happy to talk about how we can continue to support you on a fee based basis.
