Why are prices increasing?
After years of freezing our prices, and due to rising external costs, we have taken the decision to make a small price increase to some of our services. This decision has been agreed upon after discussions with Senior Management Team and we are confident our prices still offer excellent value for money.
We also offer many services which are completely free of charge, including training bursaries (grants) for small organisations, free funding support and bid feedback, membership to our networks and forums, free training courses, volunteering support, posting news and events on Doing Good Leeds and much more available, particularly for smaller groups and organisations…
