Assured Parenting offers refunds on any course or workshop booking as per the policy below:
a. Courses cancelled by Assured Parenting
In the event that we have to cancel a course, Assured Parenting will endeavour to give a minimum of 48 hours’ notice and the Client will be entitled to a full refund of the cost of the course or if preferred by the client, any payments made may be credited towards further sessions. In the event of illness 48 hours’ notice may not be possible.
We shall notify you of any cancellation or postponement of an Event or change to venue by emailing the email address that you provided on the registration form for the Event and it is your responsibility to advise us of any change to your email address. We shall not be liable for any loss you suffer (such as travelling to the Event) arising out of you failing to see our email about any cancellation, postponement or change of venue.
In the event that we have to cancel a session from the course we will endeavour to find another time, suitable to both parties, to schedule this session. If the rescheduled time is not convenient for you, you will be entitled to a refund at a rate pro-rated from the overall cost of the course, for example, if you paid £220 for a 5-week course and a session was cancelled, that session would be refunded at £44 (£220/5).
For cancellations made 2 weeks before the scheduled start of the event the client will receive a full refund or, if the client chooses, any payments made may be credited towards future sessions. For cancellations made between 2 weeks and 8 days prior to the start of a workshop a 50% refund is available. For cancellations made with 1 week to go before the event, no refunds are available and any money paid will not be available as a credit.
c. Courses cancelled by the client
One or more sessions
In the event that you have informed us, before your attendance at the first session of your course, about any sessions during your 5- or 10-week course that you cannot attend, we will provide you with an alternative date for this session (possibly at another venue) and agree with you, before the commencement of your course, the times and locations of any make-up classes. There is no cost for this service.
If, after the first session of your course, you are unable to make a session, we would ask that you inform us as soon as possible (including on the day of the session itself). For any missed session we will offer you the option to make up this session. The first request after the start of your course, for a make-up session, will be free of charge, subsequent requests will incur an administration fee of £15 per change/make-up session. All make-up sessions are subject to availability.
Prior to the start of the course
14 days notification is required in the event that a client wishes to cancel a booking for a course. Prior to 14 days a full refund will be given or a credit towards another service may be made if requested. In the event that between 13- and 8-days’ notice is given, a 50% refund will be given. In the event that 7 days or less notice is given, Assured Parenting reserves the right to retain up to 100% of the payment made to cover our costs. The Client may be offered a credit towards another course or workshop on the following basis: the place of the client can be filled on the course and the credited amount will be the amount originally paid less the cost of admin at £15.
After the commencement of the course
The Client will be offered a credit towards another course or workshop on the following basis: the credited amount will be the amount originally paid less the cost of any classes attended. In addition, Assured Parenting will deduct the cost of any classes missed without notification and an admin charge to cover the cost of any notes/handouts. This credit will have a time limit which is at the discretion of Assured Parenting but is likely to last roughly 2 months.
d. Private Consultation
If clients are unable to attend, we ask for a minimum of 48 hours’ notice of cancellation. Given this notice, a full refund/credit will be made. In the event that less than 48 hours’ notice is given Assured Parenting reserves the right to retain up to 100% of the payment made to cover our costs.
e. School Talks
Talks hosted by the school where parents are paying Assured Parenting directly
Cancellation of a talk due to insufficient numbers. At the time of booking any school talk a target number of participants will be agreed. In the event it becomes clear that the number of participants attending is likely to fall below this number Assured Parenting reserves the right to cancel or postpone the talk. Assured Parenting undertakes to keep the school fully informed about this possibility prior to any final decision.
We request 48 hours’ notice of any cancellation by a parent. Cancellations less than 48 hours prior to the start of the talk do not qualify for a refund.
Talks hosted and being paid for by the school
Where a school is paying Assured Parenting directly for a talk (notwithstanding the fact that the school may in turn be charging parents) we request 28 days’ notice of cancellation by the School to qualify for a full refund.
In the event that an event is cancelled with less than 28 days notice Assured Parenting reserve the right to withhold up to 50% of any fee paid. Cancellation with less than 14 days’ notice will result in the loss of 100% of all fees paid.
If the event is cancelled by Assured Parenting all payments received will be refunded.

In the event that a corporate workshop or course is cancelled with 28 or more days’ notice by the client we offer a full refund for any fees paid. In the event that an event is cancelled with less than 28 days’ notice Assured Parenting reserve the right to withhold up to 50% of any fee paid. Cancellation with less than 14 days’ notice will result in the loss of 100% of fees paid.
If the event is cancelled by Assured Parenting all payments received will be refunded.
