Police Care UK is committed to reducing the impact of harm on police and families. We believe that caring for their people is the duty of every police organisation. Our role is to compliment this care and help identify gaps through targeted services, projects and programmes.
As part of our commitment to reducing the impact of harm on police and families, we provide funding for local initiatives designed to improve overall wellbeing at force level.
The maximum amount which may be awarded to police forces is £3,000. Applications for smaller amounts are encouraged.

Up to £3000 is available for a wellbeing grant. All awards will be made on merit. Limited funding is available and therefore applicants are encouraged to clearly state the need for the funding, the anticipated benefits and how you will evidence the success of the initiative. All grants are awarded at the discretion of trustees.
In the event of more than 1 application per force area being submitted it is unlikely that more than 1 grant will be awarded.
Anyone within your force can submit the application, but it must be signed off by a senior officer (Superintendent rank or higher) before it is submitted. Incomplete forms without the necessary authorisation will be rejected.
Wellbeing grants are only available to police forces.
