SYPA’s New Identity

Introducing the Authority’s new identity. South Yorkshire Pensions Authority has grown and evolved over the years, and we felt it was time for a change. After careful consideration, we chose a new logo that reflects a more modern look but our branding will broadly retain the colour scheme we have adopted for many years. We have introduced the new logo without incurring additional costs but this does mean we will need to work through all the changes to our documentation on an incremental basis so please bear with us during the transition. We hope you like the new look.

Charity Events

Several charity events were held in December, by staff at the Authority, to raise money for our chosen charity Barnsley Independent Alzheimer’s and Dementia Support (BIADS). Staff took part in a Christmas Jumper Day, donating in lieu of sending Christmas cards and a teddy bear raffle.  A total of £265 was raised and presented to the charity by our very own Richard Green and Greg Cranston.
