As you may already be aware, organisations are charged when consumers use credit cards to pay for purchases. Even though we are a charity, these rules do still apply. The charge for debit cards is much cheaper. So, could we please ask that if you are intending to pay for your course using a credit card that, you consider using a debit card if possible? If this isn’t possible, we have added an option when making your payment, for you to add a voluntary contribution to help us to cover the cost of the credit card charge. By helping in this way, we can make more funds available for our frontline services to support young people.
We are a charity and do not receive any government funding so your help with lowering these costs would be greatly appreciated
