I had this idea to set up a charity so we can get funding from various areas. Then after some comments and some initial investigation I went off the idea.
If the SCC was charity based it may become dependent on funding from outside sources and that doesn’t sit will with me. I feel people/families will be more committed if they are investing in their child’s learning. Sometimes services can be taken for granted if they are cheap or free.
Also we do not know what is going to happen in the future, I prefer the attendees of the SCC to be able to have their their say, not what the Government dictates.
My whole aim is to make this centre available to everyone irrespective of income so perhaps a sliding fee scale will be more appropriate.
