Cost Recovery Workshop for Service Managers – 21st July

Age UK’s Financial Governance Team has been providing support to CEOs and Boards through their Finance Network Meetings. They are now hosting a workshop just for Service Managers on 21st July. Find out full details below.

Age UK’s Financial Governance Team has organised a cost recovery workshop specifically for Service Managers. This workshop will take place on Teams on Thursday 21st July from 11am – 12pm. Find out full details, including how to book your place, below. Please share this update with anyone who has the responsibility for delivering your organisation’s services, so that they can attend.

Age UK’s Financial Governance team has long-supported CEOs, senior Finance staff and trustees of Brand Partners in a wide range of financial governance and management matters, with feedback displaying that these contributions have been well-received.

However, an understanding of some key finance issues amongst other managers within across the Network is equally important. With that in mind, the Financial Governance Team has organised a workshop specifically for Service Managers – i.e. those who have the responsibility for delivering your organisation’s services. That said, if other senior staff or trustees wish to attend, you will be very welcome.

About the Workshop

When a charity is invited to tender to provide a service for its beneficiaries, or when the organisation is considering making changes to an existing charged-for service or applying for grant funding, it is important that the Manager responsible for delivering that service is aware of what it will cost the charity to provide it. It’s equally important for the Service Manager to know that the funds required will be sufficient to cover the costs involved and allow for unforeseen contingencies and a surplus.

As it is always good practice for Managers to continually look for ways to improve both the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of service delivery, it is important to have a full understanding of the financial basis of the service, so that good practice can be applied.

This workshop will take Service Managers through the basic financial considerations required to accurately cost and price a service so that together with Finance colleagues and other managers, they will feel confident that the application for grant funding or a proposed charge to users, will be fair and transparent, and that the provision of that service will represent a good use of the charity’s assets.

Book your place

This workshop will take place on Thursday 21st July, via Teams, will run from 11:00 to 12:00. It will take no longer than an hour and this will allow time for questions and answers. Please encourage your Service Managers and other colleagues who you feel would benefit from attending, to register by emailing John Fox (John.Fox@ageuk.org.uk) so that an invitation to join the workshop can be sent.

We intend to record the event and then to make the recording, and the supporting slide deck, available to the wider network as a Webinar which staff can view at a time convenient to them. However, attendance at a live, interactive event will always provide greater value.

By tailoring a workshop specifically for Service Managers, this is an experimental departure from our normal support approach to Brand Partners. Our aim is to raise awareness and understanding of Full Cost Recovery principles, why this is important, especially in the current challenging operating environment, and to demonstrate how it adds real value for all concerned across your organisations.

Age UK Network News Roundup – 01/07/22

Take a look at the latest weekly roundup of news from across the Age UK Network.

There’s lots to cover in this week’s Age UK Network News Roundup! We start by congratulating Age UK Oxfordshire, who have been named in the Top 100 Most Inclusive Workplaces Index 2022! Elsewhere, Age UK North Tyneside have opened their first housing scheme and Age UK Cambridgeshire & Peterborough reflect on a month of celebrations for the Platinum Jubilee. There’s also the usual roundup of vacancies, including two digital roles at Age UK Nottingham & Nottinghamshire.

As always, if you have a story from your organisation that you would like us to share with the Network, such as recent events, campaigns, or awards, please let us know at signpost@ageuk.org.uk and we’ll add it to the next roundup.


Age UK Oxfordshire named in the Top 100 Most Inclusive Workplaces Index 2022

Our congratulations to Age UK Oxfordshire, who have been named one of the most inclusive employers in the country in the The National Centre for Diversity’s Top 100 Most Inclusive Workplaces Index 2022.

Age UK Oxfordshire has carried out significant investment in equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) development and commissioned an external audit to help ensure focus in the right areas. The charity has two working groups committed to moving the organisation in the right direction: one group working at an organisational, strategic level, and the other group focussing on the daily operations of the charity.  

Sarah Jackson, HR Manager at the charity said:

We are very proud to have been listed in the ‘Top 100’. As an organisation we are fully committed to diversity and inclusion and while we are clearly doing well at present, we know that EDI is an ongoing commitment and we will constantly strive to be better.

Sarah Jackson, HR Manager, Age UK Oxfordshire

Age UK North Tyneside open their first housing scheme

Age UK North Tyneside are pleased to have opened their first housing scheme in partnership with Northumberland Estates and North Tyneside Council. Havelock Place, in the village of Backworth, Tyne and Wear, is the charity’s first extra care housing scheme for people living in later life with dementia or other cognitive impairment.

The charity aims to provide affordable and supportive living for people in later life and hopes that this is the first of many similar projects – it is also one of the strategic partners for the development of the ‘Ageing Well Village’ which will also be located in Backworth.

Age UK North Tyneside’s Chief Executive Dawn McNally said:

We believe that by offering housing, as well as our other services, we can provide holistic and truly integrated services for our customers. A very small element of planning of housing is for people in later life so that is why we are entering this market.

Housing is the bed-rock of good health and wellbeing. What makes us unique is we are a large care provider and large charity with two different types of services in housing and health and social care. What better way for us to be integrated provider than to be able to offer housing and all that comes with it?

Dawn McNally, Chief Executive, Age UK North Tyneside

The Charities Statement of Recommended Practice (SORP) provides recommendations and requirements setting out how to prepare ‘true and fair’ accounts in accordance with UK accounting standards.

As the vast majority of Local Age UKs and Cymru Partners start to develop their 2021-22 year – end financial reports we thought this would be a suitable time to update on the key requirements of the SORP and are grateful to the team at Crowe for their support with this. The presentation will focus on the following areas:

  • Risks
  • Reserves
  • Going Concern
  • Impact
  • Governance
  • Income Recognition

This will be an opportunity for colleagues from across the network to reaffirm and update their knowledge and to raise questions – obtain further insight and guidance – on this important topic from the specialist team at Crowe.

Book your place!

To register your attendance, and / or to subsequently receive a copy of the recording of the event and the slides, please simply send an email to John.Fox@ageuk.org.uk  with your name and role title, the name of the Brand Partner you are representing and the email address to which the follow-up material should be sent.

We would be grateful if you could confirm in your email whether you will be attending on the day or just requesting access to the meeting recording and supporting slides – thank you.
