From February 2023 Pick Your Own is offering a small number of free funded places to young people alongside costed places to both young people and adults. Let us know when you contact us what you are looking for and we will let you know what is currently available.
Pick Your Own is largely run voluntarily. Funding to date has been achieved from a variety of grant awards, this covers running costs, activity costs and resources and mentors takes a low-cost payment for direct sessional work and casework.
Such funding is precarious and any fund-raising help and donations are very welcome to enable this support to continue. The more funding we achieve the more funded places we can offer to young people.
Costed places are £35 p/h for direct mentoring (face to face or on-line) and £30 p/h for supporting casework.
