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 result we have a small bursary fund open to those whose financial circumstances might prevent them from otherwise attending. We will ask you what you can afford to pay, and the rest will come from the bursary fund where possible.



Please read this page carefully. As a community, we adhere to a set of values as much as possible. These values are based on taking responsibility for ourselves and helping others.


The CIP is a non-profit organisation. Our aim is to offer affordable quality support for people across all spectrums of class and creed. Our commitment in this is to keep the workshops, what we would consider affordable for anyone in employment. 


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 this bursary scheme.


Unfortunately the scheme can, and has been abused, not because people are bad, but because if it’s cheaper why not? Here’s 2 reasons why not.


The project will be denied much needed funds to continue operating.


Someone who truly can’t afford it and really needs it may miss out.


So if you can afford full price please don’t go through the bursary process. If you can’t afford it please do continue on the bursary process we can help you thanks to those who do pay full price and other donors.


To be considered for a bursary place, please complete the online application 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. To support this scheme, you can do so either as a one-off gift, or by a regular (monthly / quarterly / yearly) contribution, paid through direct debit to the CIP Project bank account.
