As a not-for-profit organisation, we are able to keep the costs of running and attending our workshops to a minimum. However, we are passionate about the importance of our work and believe it should be open to everyone, regardless of their financial circumstances.



As a community, we adhere to a set of values. These values are based on taking responsibility for ourselves and for helping others.


The CIP Project is a non-profit organisation. Our aim is to offer affordable high quality support for all who need it, regardless of their personal circumstances. We commit to keeping the workshop costs reasonable for those in employment with disposable income. We also commit to giving at least 25 percent of the spaces in a workshop to those who can’t afford the full price through our bursary scheme.


Unfortunately the scheme can, and has, been abused.

Not because people are bad, but because if it’s cheaper why not? Here is why not.


  1. The CIP Project relies on trading income, including workshop sales, to survive. If workshops do not bring in enough income to cover costs, then the CIP Project will cease to trade. Then everyone loses. This is an ever present risk, and we have nearly had to close our doors several times over the last few years.

  2. If you take much needed funds when you could really afford it, but just don't want to miss out on a deal, someone who truly can’t afford it, and really needs it, will miss out.


So if you can afford full price please don’t apply for a bursary place, either fully or part funded.

If you can’t afford it, please DO apply, and we will help you, thanks to those who pay full price and other donations.



To be considered for a bursary place, please complete the online application form and a member of the team will get back to you. Alternatively, if you'd prefer to apply via video message, please send an email to us at and we'll send you further instructions.


  • Applications will be considered on an individual basis and applicants will be notified of the outcome within 4 weeks of the receipt of their application.

  • Successful applicants will receive the subsidised/funded place on the intended course or retreat.

  • Payment to support any other agreed cost will be arranged individually with each applicant

  • Bursaries are only available for workshops run by The CIP Project

  • Successful applicants agree to provide a short evaluation of their experience at at the end of their stay and give permission for this to be used in promotional or funding materials



Through our bursary scheme we hope to be able to reach some of the most vulnerable members of society. If you would like to help us achieve this goal, then please donate to support our work.
