Aberlour Gender Pay Gap Report 2021

The gender pay gap in an organisation is the difference in pay levels between male and female employees, irrespective of the position held. We remain confident that men and women are paid fairly and equally for the same or similar roles as supported by our job evaluation system.

The median pay gap shows that the mid-pay point of our female staff (£12.71 per hour) sits above that of our male staff (£12.49 per hour).

Our mean pay gap has decreased by 1.78% over the last year closing the gap between the average hourly rate for male and female staff in Aberlour to 5.5%. This remains well below the UK average of 15.5%.

Being Brave – Aberlour Strategy 2021-2025

We know that not all children are born with an equal chance. We know that support often comes too late and in response to crisis. And we know that this has a negative impact on children already facing disadvantage because of poverty and discrimination.

 

Aberlour’s new strategy is about Being Brave for Children, Young People and Families. To read the full strategy please click here

Aberlour news spring 2021

Welcome to the Spring edition of Aberlour news! In this jam-packed edition read all out our 2021 Scottish election manifesto and how, thanks to your support, we have been able to continue to support vulnerable children and their families across Scotland.

Aberlour response to consultation on the revised national guidance for child protection

At Aberlour we work with families to provide help and support to mitigate the most challenging circumstances for families, to prevent difficulties developing into crises that otherwise can often lead to risk of harm to the wellbeing and welfare of children. We believe that through working with families at the earliest opportunity we can best protect children from being exposed to the risk of neglect or abuse. Therefore, we welcome the opportunity to respond to this consultation on the revised national guidance for child protection.

Aberlour Gender Pay Gap Report 2020

We remain confident that men and women are paid fairly and equally for the same or similar roles as supported by our job evaluation system. Read our latest Gender Pay Gap Report below.

Cash Now Families Always Manifesto

In recent research by Prof. Morag Treanor from The Herriot-Watt University, we were alerted that child poverty is on the rise. Before Covid-19 around 1 in 4 children in Scotland were living in poverty. As a result of the pandemic, many more families risk falling or being pushed deeper, into poverty. Increasing numbers of families across Scotland are struggling to make ends meet as child poverty rises.

At our annual panel event on 26 November, we’ve concluded that we need to take urgent action. That’s why we have prepared a manifesto with demands for all political parties which we will share before the upcoming Scottish Elections in May 2021.

Aberlour, Child Poverty Action Group & One Parent Families Scotland Joint Briefing Paper The Scottish Welfare Fund

The additional £45 million investment in the Scottish Welfare Fund (SWF) in response to Covid-19 was widely welcomed and much needed. However, during the pandemic charities and anti-poverty organisations have become concerned about issues and challenges many families across Scotland are experiencing accessing SWF. Since lockdown, organisations such as Aberlour and One Parent Families Scotland (OPFS) have seen an increase in need for financial support and a corresponding rise in applications to their own hardship funds.

Duty of Candour 2019-20 report

All health and social care services in Scotland now have a ‘duty of candour’. This is a legal requirement which means that when things go wrong and mistakes happen, the people affected understand what has happened, receive an apology and that organisations learn how to improve for the future.
