The UPCA Bursary and Hardship Fund is there to support members studying and training to be psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors or UPCA members (post-training) who may need financial assistance.

If you are unwaged or experiencing financial hardship, please download a UPCA Hardship and Bursary form and return it to us completed at: with details of your circumstances for our consideration.

Applications will be considered as quickly as possible by the UPCA Bursary and Hardship Committee. If successful the administrator will contact you asking for bank details to transfer the amount awarded and in the case of a bursary, to inform the course leader. The maximum amount awarded is £300.

Please note that the hardship or bursary grant is intended as a one-off only payment during training with possibly one application allowed for post-qualified members of UPCA. The fund is not intended as an on-going support.
