Why Do We Use A Sliding Scale?

Our core aim in Grass Roots Remedies Co-operative is to try and make herbal knowledge, skills & consultations accessible to everyone. As well as running herbal courses we also provide two low cost community clinics – one is in Wester Hailes, South Edinburgh for locals from EH11 and EH14, and the other is in Granton North Edinburgh which is open to anyone. On top of this we run free workshops & walks in Edinburgh in Wester Hailes, Craigmillar, Pilton & Granton.

We use a sliding scale in our workshops and courses: a sliding scale is a mechanism where people pay different fees according to their income, so that services can be made accessible to as many people as possible, and folk aren’t financially excluded. A sliding scale means that everyone pays a similar proportion of their income for the same service. This increases access for people who are systemically excluded from participating in community activities such as people of colour, people with disabilities or health conditions, immigrants, women-led groups, LGBTQ* & working class communities.

By paying a higher rate on the scale if you can afford it, you are enabling us to carry out our core work of providing free and low cost education & herbal consultations in areas of deprivation. We really appreciate your continuing support.
