Evolution Arts tries to keep its prices as affordable as possible. Concessions on course fees are available to:
Full-time unemployed (JSA, DLA, ESA)
People in receipt of State Pension
The concession rate can only be given with proof of eligibility, such as a passport or driving licence, a letter confirming Jobseekers Allowance, or a bus pass. Please book in person at the Evolution office with your proof of eligibility.
It is possible for you to book over the phone but proof of your eligibility for the concession rate (a scan or photocopy of the relevant document) will need to be brought along to the first session of the course/workshop and shown to the person on the door.
The full-time unemployed will need to submit updated evidence once every six months in order to continuing booking courses at the concessionary rate.
Note: Those on Working Tax Credit cannot claim the concession rate. If you do not fall within the above concession catogories but wish to request the concession rate (to be funded by the Evolution Access Fund), please email firstname.lastname@example.org, detailing your circumstances and stating the course/workshop you wish to attend. All requests are careful considered and you will be contacted whether or not your request is successful. Please make sure your request is made within good time of the course/workshop start date so that it might be processed.
Concessions are not available on evening courses where there is a daytime equivalent.
