Join us for Mental Health Awareness Week 2020!

During this week, we have webinars, resources and general information on what Queen Mary is doing to support its students and staff. We welcome back Inner Space, a long-time friend of Queen Mary’s during Mental Health Awareness Week and they will be leading us in a guided meditation. Peter Thomson of WorkWise is delivering a webinar on ‘Managing Your Way Out Of The Crisis’, full of tips and practical advice as to how you can support yourself and your mental well-being. Dr. Dominique Thomson will be in an interview answering questions on ‘Managing Uncertainty In An Uncertain World’ and sharing her experience as a G.P., before our webinars conclude on Friday 22 May with Inner Space on how to ‘Think Positively’.

There is more than just these seminars, so please go to here to find out more!

Happy Mental Health Awareness Week!

Childcare Voucher Scheme
28 March 2011

Join the Childcare Voucher Scheme before April 2011 to make the maximum savings.

The taxation of Childcare vouchers if you have responsibility for children under 15 is changing.

All employees with Children up to 15 (16 if they are registered disabled) can currently receive £243 a month of their savings on any registered childcare.

From April 2011, the changes are being restricted for those paying higher rate and additional rate tax.

Higher rate tax payers who are not registered on the scheme by the 1st April 2011 will only be able to receive £124 a month tax an NI exempt.

Additional rate taxpayers who join the scheme on or after 1st April 2011 will only be allowed to receive £97 a month tax and NI exempt.

If you are already part of the scheme before this date you will continue to be entitled to £243 a month tax and NI exempt regardless of the level of tax you pay.  If you leave the scheme and rejoin at a later date the new lower rates will apply.

This means that by joining the scheme now you can make the maximum possible savings.
