What is the Charities Pensions Club?
The Charities Pensions Club (CPC) was formed to support a small group of pension professionals in the charity sector to meet and discuss topical pensions matters. Six years on, the CPC has grown significantly, with a total membership now of around 15 charities.
CPC membership includes some of the UK’s stellar charities, including Action for Children, Age UK, Mencap, Save the Children and Wellcome Trust. Members meet at least twice a year to understand industry trends and share ideas – delegates also keep in touch throughout the year, virtually, through the CPC e-mail group.
"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."

How do CPC Members Benefit?
The last 2 years have been a turbulent for all, including charities – it is estimated that the third sector expected a loss of £12.4bn because of the Covid-19 pandemic. The CPC offers charities affordable pensions support during uncertain financial times.
Charities have access to the latest industry pensions knowledge through peer discussion, and presentations from high profile guest speakers – helping their organisation become more competitive.
The Charities Pensions Club works for you.
In the charity sector, you owe it to your donors and volunteers to keep consultancy fees low. The CPC helps you do this by providing a forum for members to discuss sector specific concerns with experts and peers.
The main activity of the CPC is 3 events per year hosted by our partners CMS and Isio. This year we have also arranged 2 further events with guest speakers from Reward Connected and the PLSA.
All events for 2022 can be attended in-person or virtually with the exception of the joint PLSA meeting in June which is in-person only.
Member Group Email Addresses
We have a group email address for all our members. This allows members to contact each other during the year with any queries or questions. Members find this a really useful tool to share knowledge throughout the year.
We arrange a short pensions benchmarking survey and report with members. This helps members share and find the latest market data among their peers.
Cost & Representatives
The cost of membership is £480 for the year. Membership runs from 1st January until 31st December each year. Up to 2 representatives from a member organisation can join the CPC, and one of the representatives must be responsible (i.e. management level or higher.) for pensions at the organisation. Representatives must be employees of the organisations and not a third party.
