Why we exist

Police and families risk physical and psychological harm every day. We are the national charity for the entire police service and it's people, providing the practical, emotional, and financial support they need to recover and rebuild their lives for a brighter future.

Real life stories

The demanding role that is modern policing can challenge any officer. Here are a few stories of how we have helped.

Raise money for Police Care UK

We receive no money from Government or police forces to support our work, and rely on donations and fundraising to care for the thousands of serving and veteran police, and their families, who need our help every day.

Police Care UK calls for a mental health strategy for policing

More than 50 agencies and employers are responsible for more than 300,000 people currently serving in the police. No mental health strategy exists, despite it being one of the most traumatic jobs in the UK. It's time to change this.

What we do

We ensure everyone is aware of the harm experienced in policing

Police Care UK believes everyone should understand the dangers police face everyday, and how the harm they suffer can affect them and their families. Through improving awareness, we help develop appropriate services to support them, and reduce the shame of physical and psychological injuries so that people can get the care they need with dignity.

We enable police and families to recover and rebuild their lives

Police Care UK believes that police and families should always have someone to turn to that understands their situation and can respond effectively to their needs. By providing a specialist and confidential programme of practical, emotional, and financial support, we help more people effectively recover and rebuild their lives.

We engage with the police service to do all it can to reduce or prevent harm

Police Care UK believes that caring for their people is the duty of every police organisation. Our role is to complement this care, and help identify gaps through targeted services, projects, and programmes.
