Please email email@example.com and let them know about your favourite place to eat, drink or shop or your hobby or interest that is not currently covered and the team will do their very best to get a discount via the scheme.
Childcare Voucher Scheme
Provided by Sodexo. The scheme operates by voluntary salary sacrifice where you can exchange part of your gross salary for Childcare Voucher Credit (up to £243 per month). Because the deduction is from gross salary, effectively you are using some of your tax and National Insurance contributions to meet your childcare costs. This can mean savings of up to £933 per year. For more information see www.saycarevouchers.co.uk and https://www.saycarevouchers.co.uk/index/parent-benefits-and-savings. The freephone number to call Sodexo with any queries, problems using the online system etc is 0800 328 7411.
To join or make any changes, you will need to use the Sodexo online system and also complete, print and send to Payroll a copy of the Childcare Vouchers Salary Sacrifice form.
If you are joining the scheme, please contact Laura Marshall in HR firstname.lastname@example.org so that sign up details can be triggered for you for the online system - HR needs to initiate this for you. You need to both complete the online registration and fill in, sign and return the Childcare Vouchers Salary Sacrifice form. The form must reach payroll by the monthly payroll deadline to be processed for that month.
If you want to change the amount you are paying into the scheme, please contact Payroll email@example.com to confirm that that it is possible for you to do this. You then need to input the change on the online Sodexo system and fill in, sign and return the Childcare Vouchers Salary Sacrifice form putting the changed amount and the date from which this is to apply.
