Payroll Giving is a win-win initiative for employers. It is an extra, no cost benefit to offer your employees as part of a voluntary/flexible benefits package and it demonstrates your corporate social responsibility in the community.

Through our partnership with Payroll Giving in Action, support from our Command Team and by making employees aware of charitable giving through payroll, we have increased our percentage uptake year on year. At present 34% of all Police Officers donate, while 17% of all Staff donates through Payroll Giving. In total 30% of our organisation donate giving yearly donations of over £240,000.
This continues to grow even with a reduction in overall staff numbers and a severe recession. This has been achieved with road shows, promotions through staff magazines, emails by Chief Officers, and by PGA site visits to locations spread over a large geographical area.
Deputy Chief Constable Judith Gillespie said "Payroll Giving is an excellent way to support any UK registered charity of choice, on a regular basis, and because the donation is tax-free and given directly from an individual’s pay, it is the simplest and most effective way of supporting your chosen good cause(s)."
Royal Mail celebrated the commitment of its people to charitable giving, as it posted a record-breaking set of results from its payroll donation scheme.
Royal Mail was among the first organisations to set up payroll giving in 1989, and its scheme is currently one of the largest in the UK. Over the last 28 years, employeeshave consistently shown their commitment to payroll giving by donating over £56 million to charity, with 27% of employees currently subscribed to the scheme.
