Your needs are very different to those of anyone else we help. That's why we have provided some examples of the support available from Police Care UK, but if you don't see the help you think you need then the best thing to do is to fill out a referral form, and someone from our welfare team will get in touch with you to discuss your situation.
For more than 50 years, we have been a lifeline to people just like you, helping with a whole range of situations and needs, and the support we can provide continues long after you or a loved one has left the service.
You can self-refer, or refer someone else for help from Police Care UK. Just fill out this form and we'll get in touch. Alternatively, you can call us on 0300 012 0030 (lines open 9am-5pm Mon-Fri)

Ill-health retirement is a difficult, traumatic, and emotionally challenging process to come to terms with that leaves many people feeling they are alone. That's why we've launched a new service (pilot currently in the North-West)
