The Federation help fund Wellbeing days which have launched in July 2020, for those who have taken this initiative up; we have had positive feedback.
The kind of activity we have supported is Paint-balling, Bowling, Escape room, Cinema, Theme Parks and Go Ape! We cannot fund these activities in their entirety as we have some rather strict fund rules, and are accountable to our auditors and trustees for all expenditure.
We would however like to support this in some small way in recognition of the pressures officers work under, and as such would like to offer you the following under some specific criteria:
• £10 per subscribing member contribution from the Leicestershire Police Federation for the purpose of a team building day/activity
• This must not involve alcohol, and would have to be to be done in the member's own time unless duty time is authorised by the Force
• We would need to have an invoice/booking confirmation before the funds are released to a nominated SPOC on behalf of the team (we will not accept individual applications)
• Only one application per officer in a calendar year
• The Branch Secretary or Treasurer will have the final decision on the application/activity being approved, and if we feel it is being misused we will need to reassess this offer
It may not seem a large contribution, but there are often group offers available, and if it halves the price then it’s better than nothing!
Members are reminded that they can access this fund on a twelve-month rolling basis.
HOW TO APPLY
• Email the Federation Office on email@example.com with WELLBEING REQUEST in the title with the details and a list of the officers
