Centre recognition for new centres


A non-refundable standard fee is charged for the centre recognition process and will be invoiced at the beginning of the application.

Additional charges may be applied where further support from Agored Cymru is required to achieve compliance.

This charge is instead of the annual fee for recognised centres in the first year of working with us.
