Membership Subscription Increase

By DPF Admin21st February 2024Circulars, Latest News

To All Members

Circular 03/24


Members are advised that, as a result of the motion carried at the Annual Conference in June 2023 and the mandate of the National Executive Committee Meeting of December 2023, the monthly DPF subscription will be increasing, in line with the long established DPF formula, to £22.60 per month. This will be effective from 1st March 2024 incorporating the two previous Pay Awards of 1st September 2022 & 1st September 2023.

The new monthly subscription of £22.60, when calculated to its annual rate, is equal to 1% of a Pay Point 1 Constable (the established DPF Subscription Formula), and will remain linked to this position, maintaining the long-established principle of future increases being directly linked to our pay.

The DPF is totally reliant on membership subscriptions to provide our services. These include, but are not limited to, legal representation if you are faced with criminal proceedings on or off duty, legal representation and advice at misconduct / performance hearings and employment tribunals, help with civil and industrial injury claims, welfare advice, assistance with grievance procedures, advice if suffering sexual, racial or other discriminatory behaviour or harassment in the workplace and support with the formal process, UPP, IHR and subsequent appeals.

Members also benefit from full PFOA membership, which is equivalent to £5 per month if they were applying individually.

It should be noted that this is the first subscription increase for over two years, with the previous Membership Subscription increase taking place in January 2022, hence this uplift.

You are still able to claim Tax Relief from your subscriptions, at the rate applicable to your tax code, giving you a minimum of 20p in the pound back, reducing the overall cost. Please speak to your local Branch Representative or Area Secretary if you require assistance in claiming this tax relief.
