The Movement Centre is a charity and we aim to make our services as accessible as we can.
We offer families a free Initial Assessment, which is funded through our own fundraising and donations. This enables us to determine if a child is suitable for Targeted Training therapy.
Your contribution: We ask families to contribute a minimum of £2,000 towards a 12 month course of Targeted Training therapy (if your child is suitable and you would like to proceed).
Payment Plan 1: The course of therapy can be paid for in full or in two payments. If paying in two payments, we ask that families contribute 50% of the contribution (£1,000) before the course commences and a further 50% (£1,000) six months after the course commences. Payments can be made by bank transfer or cheque (or through a fundraising platform if you have one set up for your child).
Payment Plan 2: We understand the financial pressures that our families face and not everyone can afford to pay in one go or indeed over two payments, therefore, we offer an interest free monthly payment plan, which can be tailored to suit the financial needs of our families. The payments plan can be stretched up to 12 months, so a family opting for this plan would face a bill of circa £166 per month / £38 per week.
Delivering Targeted Training: Each 12 month course of Targeted Training therapy costs The Movement Centre £5500 to deliver.
Therefore, we are truly grateful to any family who are able to contribute towards the full cost (over and above the required commitment of £2000), through private funds or fundraising activities.
It is due to the support of our fantastic donors and fundraisers that we are able to contribute towards the cost of Targeted Training.
If your child is suitable we can offer advice on fundraising and on organisations that may be able to assist towards the cost of Targeted Training therapy.
Please note a shorter 6 month course may be available, if determined to be the correct route by our Physiotherapists at the child’s initial assessment and payments are reflective of the shorter course.
