Foundation for Conductive Education announces financial problems

First CE charity makes emegency public appeal

The Foundation for Conductive Education has announced an urgent shortfall of £120,000. If this is not met the Fondation will be forced to cut back services.

The Foundation provides the National Institute of Conductive Education in Birmingham, including conductive services for children and adults, and degree-level conductor-training , along with the National Library of Conductive Education.

The Foundation was constituted in 1986, its charitable purpose being:

...for the development and advancement of the science and skill of Conductive Education, especially the teaching thereof...

It remains the only CE body with extending knowledge, rather than delivering services, as its primary mandated purpose.

  1. Dear Andrew, I was sorry to hear that the Foundation is experiencing financial difficulties at the moment.
    As one of your first graduates, I just wanted to let you know that I am thinking of you all and hoping that things will turn around for the better soon.
    I am sure that something good will happen to resolve this if we all put our energy into it.
    Kindest wishes,
    Mandy x

  2. Thanks for those warm personal good wishes, though do remember that I retired from the Foundation more that four years ago.

    Yes, we live in interesting times, and that goes for the whole of Conductive Education.

    I am sure that if people pull together then good will eventually come to Conductive Education in the end.
