Requests to substitute must be made via email to the address shown above in order for certificates and course registers to be updated.

Cancellation fees for subscription members:

It is requested that, where possible subscribers follow the cancellation policy above and where possible a substitute is sent on training. There will be no charge for non-attendance at courses for those providers who sign up to the subscription. However any place on training that was not attended without notice will be counted and taken as part of the provider’s subscription allocation.  

Cancellation of training sessions/CPD events by Together for Children

We reserve the right to cancel or postpone any course/ event or programme for the following reasons: 

  • Insufficient numbers to make the course viable;
  • Unforeseen circumstances beyond the control of Together for Children for example trainer/facilitator illness, severe weather conditions, travel problems, premises issues.

If this happens, we will inform you as soon as possible using the contact details provided at the point of booking. An alternative date will be offered where possible.
