1)Do you work for or are you a volunteer board members for a company with charitable registration?
2)Are you interested in or worried about the how the new Workplace Pensions Auto-enrolment Legislation will impact your organisation?
3)Are you unsure how to meet the demands of the legislation & even “where to start”?
Charities, Social Enterprises, CIC’s & SCIO’s are like any other employer in regards to the key workplace pensions legislation the UK government launched in December 2013. Theses employers must comply with the new staff benefit rule which dictates they ensure they have an appropriate workplace pension scheme up and running by what is called their “staging date”. Based on research which financial inclusion social enterprise The Plan B Partnership conducted last Summer, many charitable organisations & networks are unprepared. Plan B have a pensions & charities project which provides information, guidance, training & planning to address the various pensions auto-enrolment issues in our 3rd sector. Their services are available via www.pensionplans4charities.co.uk or you can contact Plan B’s office direct on 0141 237 3895 or call Lucy their Director & Lead Trainer on 07887551466. They also tweet under @Plans4Charities – due to demand & the fact Plan B is independent, these services are nationally delivered with many free of charge. NOTE: People using Self Directed Support are classed as “Employers” in many circumstances and also qualify to meet this new legislation!
If you book some of the training Plan B’s offer before 1st July 2014 you qualify for a 20% discount- please quote this bulletin when you call Plan B & make your booking. Other services are not discounted as they are already vastly reduced for financial inclusion purposes.
