Photgraphy by Aiden Harmitt-Williams
- This is a hybrid programme.
- We strongly encourage and will support you to attend in-person as much as you can. Participation online is there when needed e.g., for mental and/or physical health conditions, disabilities, or if feeling unwell/testing positive for Covid.
- We’ll also consider applications from people living outside of London who may need to participate solely or partly online if they’re too far away for regular travel.
- We aim to support travel costs (usually via public transport) within the M25 circular boundary or a limited number of journeys via National Rail/coach if coming from outside of London.
- Your ability to participate in the programme, whether in-person or online, does not affect your application.
- The programme takes place in step-free spaces with accessible toilets on the same floor. There are lifts servicing all floors of the Centre where sessions take place.
- We do not have fragrance-free areas, though do encourage people to be mindful of how strong fragrances may adversely impact others.
- Regular sessions are generally relaxed in nature, meaning stimming and tics are welcome, and people can leave the space if they need to. There are usually quieter spaces nearby available to use.
- This programme is not currently BSL interpreted.
