Charity Status

Post by Admin on Fri Sep 01, 2017 5:00 pm

1st September 2017.

Today IODPA have announced that the Association has become a charitable incorporated organisation (CIO)

Registered Charity Number 1174473

The Association has incorporated and built upon a decade of sterling work from IOD officers to become a truly representative organisation for police officers injured in the course of their duties. IOD officers need to be aware of the threats to their pensions, even if they are not currently affected. Membership of IODPA is the best route to effective defence of your pension. Please contact IODPA to become a member. admin@iodpa.org

From IODPA

Injury On duty Pensioners Association has just received registration status from the Charity Commission and is now a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) with a Registered Charity Number 1174473

A CIO is a charity which is also incorporated. In law it is recognised as a legal entity. The trustees benefit from having limited liability. An Association CIO model means our membership has voting rights that can help determine the direction of IODPA.

Charities are recognised publicly as being for the wider good (not just the good of their own members). Being a charity gives us that public recognition.

The existence of IODPA - there to help those injured on duty - is a distinct realignment. We do not exist to absolve chief constables in providing welfare and a safety net, but because chief constables have failed to provide. The charity of our members, those themselves injured on duty, needs to take over where the ability of the police service to look after its injured has failed.

We hope to not work in opposition to chief constables but in conjunction with them, to tell them what needs to be done for the public benefit by supporting those injured on duty. A hard task when some chief constables block our message on social media, but not an impossible one.

IODPA would like to thank its members and supporters to allow us to get this far. This is the start of something new.
