Allowances allow you to pay additional rates to Staff for shifts that may require special skills such as a first aid qualification (in which a First Aid Allowance may be implemented) or where you want to pay Staff costs for meals etc.
Allowances can also be allocated based on the type of service being performed (E.g.: a Sleepover shift will have a Sleepover allowance allocated).
Allowances can only be allocated from the shift/program information page. This page can be accessed whilst generating a shift/program or editing a shift/program.
On the shift/program information page select the allowance from the drop-down menu.
