Domestic Abuse has a significant impact in all workplaces, for example;
It is estimated that domestic violence costs UK businesses in excess of £2.7bn each year due to decreased productivity, poor performance, absenteeism and
employee turnover. A recent Home Office report found that 20 per cent
of victims of Domestic Abuse had to take a month or more off work in the previous year due to the abuse. Other research has found that 56 per cent of abused women arrive late for work at least five times a month and 53 percent miss at least three days of work a month.
We can help you to set up a Payroll Giving scheme so that your staff can donate directly from their salary before tax. Payroll Giving enables a basic rate tax payer to tax relief of £2 on every £10 donated, meaning that a £10 donation only actually costs them £8.
If your company already has a Payroll Giving scheme in place, we can give a talk to your staff to encourage them to give to The Elm Foundation through the scheme.
