I'm an outpatient and i go to the day centre in Nottingham.
I have been going to the day centre for several years and i have recently been funded and attend 2 groups in art and woodwork. I have just found out I'm having to pay £25 for a 2 hour session where the teacher is a service user himself.
I understand that day centres need to be funded but find this amount a bit extortionate as this takes up the majority of my budget. I also found out that there is a rating system to which service users are charged, I feel this to be unfair.
