In July 2015 MPs were awarded a payrise of £336 (after NI and income tax) per month. Given the current situation our public sector and civil society currently finds itself in I felt it was inappropriate to take this and pledged to donate it to local charities. Any charity that operates in the Sheffield Heeley constituency can apply for money from this pot and will be considered at the end of each quarter to receive the donation.
Please note, I have designed the form to be as simple and as fair as possible but this is the first time I’ve done this so if you have any questions, thoughts or comments on the process please do let me know and we will try to improve the process as it continues. I have attempted to design it so that as many local organisations as possible can benefit and it can benefit the area as much as possible.
