It's going to be hard to advise without more detail. Please tell us what's happened.

 

Is this a housing association?

I had paid a deposit of £100 for therapy and was informed that they were a not for profit concern, so my immediate question would be, is it proportionate to keep all of the deposit for themselves as I was not able to attend the course as if any loss that they may have had was minimal, what is the law on this, many thanks.

Okay we are getting there...albeit very slowly.

 

As long as you’re a consumer, the Consumer Contracts Regulations gives you the right to cancel a contract entered at a distance - for example, when you purchase a course online or over the phone.

The definition of ‘consumer’ in the Consumer Contracts Regulations is an individual acting for purposes which are wholly or mainly outside that individual’s trade, business, craft or profession.

As the provider is a not for profit outfit, could only actual losses be claimed ?, A reasonable admin charge for instance so the £100. 00 deposit I paid could not legitimately be claimed as non refundable as I can't see that there was any losses, unfair terms perhaps ?.

Even if the terms and conditions state that any deposit is non refundable, could this been challenged under unfair terms ?.

Yes, if it wasnt explained properly or they failed to conside the distnace selling regs or the notice you gave was reasonable.

non refundable means nothing in itself.
