Financial Support

We would love everyone to be able to experience the richness of Woodbrooke learning and the fellowship of joining a course at Woodbrooke or online. We want to enable everyone who wishes to participate in a course to be able to attend whatever their financial circumstances. There are a number of sources of financial help available.

In addition to Woodbrooke’s bursary funds, Local and Area meetings often have bursary funds available. We recommend that you speak to the spiritual nurture and pastoral care team in your Quaker meeting.

Young People Aged 18-35

  • Anyone aged 18-35 can book most courses for half the listed price. Terms and conditions apply*. To take advantage of this offer, select the young person option at the point of booking. Where this option is not available and the price is prohibitive, please contact us to request a bursary instead.


If you would like bursary support, please apply prior to booking. All enquiries and bursary applications are treated confidentially by Woodbrooke staff.
