The fees are there to support the continued running and improvement of this website.

Whilst we hope that most Facilitator members will have the willingness and capacity to pay our full annual rate, and find it excellent value for money, we recognise that this won't be the case for everyone. If you only offer a few events per year where you typically offer them at low cost and/or for free or paying our annual rate is unaffordable to you, please do email us to request a discount code, our membership administrator can discuss this with you.
