Privacy and Terms and Conditions

WHO WE ARE

Avon and Somerset Police Force Club is an independent private members non-incorporated body which operates subject to a written constitution and a set of rules and governed by a committee headed by the Chief Constable as Club Chair Person. We do not deal with the public and serve only our members, the majority of which are serving and retired Avon and Somerset Police staff all of which have requested to subscribe to our club.

We are managed and administrated by staff that are paid via Avon and Somerset Police payroll and work from the club office at Avon and Somerset Police Headquarters which is a non-profit organisation whose members apply for membership and pay a subscription to be a member of a benefits club.

The Force Club works under the umbrella of Avon and Somerset Police and in doing so we serve both our subscribing members and also support the Force Health and Wellbeing strategy as a key objective.

Any questions about privacy or data protection please contact the office.

Deals and Benefits

Avon and Somerset Constabulary Force Club offer exclusive benefits negotiated for you by the Force Club and our network of UK police clubs. These are available every day for you and your family. We will also make you aware of some worthy generic internet offers as we don’t want you to miss out on these, but mostly our benefits are only available to a restricted group of membership clubs. For your small subscription, you should easily be able to recoup that not only once but several times over if you are careful about how you shop and spend your hard-earned cash. If we don’t have want you are looking for, then please ask. We can often get it for you or at least tell you where the best place is to go it.

As a club member, you can claim any of these benefits by either quoting the discount code or by showing some evidence to prove your membership. Staff ID cards should not be shown, * because discounts are negotiated on your behalf as a police sports and social club member and NOT because you are employed by Avon and Somerset Constabulary. The force integrity policy prohibits staff from accepting benefits or discounts for this reason.

All members should be receiving club updates by email, which includes news on the latest member benefits. If you are not getting these, please inform the administrator and you will be added to the distribution list.

IMPORTANT – In order to maintain the integrity of our benefits, please do not divulge any codes shown to any person that is not a paying member of our club. After all why would you want to if they are not subscribing and you are?

The club carries out audit checks with our partners to verify that only paying members are claiming benefits and discounts. If you are aware of any person wrongly claiming benefits or discounts, please let the club know in confidence.

*Some partners offer deals to serving staff only and they ask for proof of employment. If they will only accept a work ID then please show the Force Club card with it and tell them that the discount is accepted by staff on behalf of the Force Club and not because of your association with Avon and Somerset Constabulary. Please tell us where this occurs and we go back to company.

Our deals are current when published but can expire or change without notice.

Please let us know if this happens and we will try to renew it for you.

Please be aware that if you are not happy with anything that you have booked through this website, it is not the responsibility of the Force Club to resolve the issue and you must go direct to the company.
