Pension provision is a minefield area for charities, with complex legal requirements and significant cost considerations. Economic pressure has made it difficult for the third sector to access affordable pension consultancy, and keep pace with the ever-shifting industry trends. The Charities Pensions Club is your one-stop-shop to ensure that your charity is ahead of the curve, and offers fit for purpose pension provision.
VALUE FOR MONEY
Charities are always under scrutiny as to how they spend donor money. Although support services are essential to a successful charity, it is important to ensure such expenditure is moderate. The Charities Pensions Club is a respectable halfway house, and will allow you to soundboard ideas, and understand industry trends – thus being able to bypass consultancy for quick intel.
Other attempts to form a similar club have failed – largely because of the consultant-centric structure of such groups. Your charity is central to everything we do, and we ensure that content is bespoke to your requirements – and not an excuse for advisers to compete for your business. You are at the centre of everything we do.
'As the only pensions professional at Save the Children, membership of the Charities Pension Club has been invaluable to me in bringing together a network of similar people from the charity sector. That network provides a sounding board for ideas, solutions to issues and benchmarking. In addition to the meetings, members exchange ideas by email, as they arise, between meetings; the high level of participation in these ad-hoc exchanges is extremely useful. '
Save the Children UK
'It is very useful to be able to share information, ideas and issues on pensions with other charities. As charities we often have a different focus than other employers on pensions. The Charities Pension Club enables us to get together and discuss these. The network of contacts has been invaluable and enables a quick access to gain information and help on all sorts of pension questions.'
'Scope has, during its membership, benefited from the advice, experience and information from the Club to undertake its operational tasks in the management of its pension schemes.'
'Attending the CPC meetings gives you the opportunity to network with your peers and exchange ideas, which helps keeps fees down.'
Royal Mencap Society
'An invaluable forum for sharing ideas and experiences with particular relevance to the charity sector. Subjects are determined by the members and discussions are always informal and open, which leads to some great contributions from peers.'
