Sliding Pay Scale information

Just some information regarding the sliding pay scale.

At Trees and Seas we try to make sessions affordable to all and we use a sliding scale payment system known as “pay what you can” which is income based, and self-assessed. How to estimate what to pay for Pay What You Can (PWYC):

TIER 1

  • I may have some debt but it does not prohibit attainment of basic needs.
  • I own my home or property or I rent a higher-end property.
