About Us

Did you know?

The Police Children’s Charity is a registered Charity which aims to support Police families by helping to ease the financial pressures of bringing up children in the face of life-changing circumstances. These circumstances could involve the death of the Police Donor Parent or their partner, or where the Police Donor takes early medical retirement. This applies to both on and off duty incidents or issues.

The Charity also provides financial assistance to support the mental health and wellbeing of the children of Serving Police Donors.

The Police put their lives on the line every day to keep our neighbourhoods and communities safe and free from crime. While no amount of money can replace a Parent, support from the Charity can provide a degree of financial certainly in difficult times.

Support the Charity and together we can help safeguard our beneficiary children’s future.

Yesterday one of our PTC Castlebrae kitchen bank staff, Lorraine McMillan, organised and ran a cake sale on behalf of The Police Children’s Charity, with the sale of donated cakes and scones, as well as a raffle and a few other competitions. Patients and staff came together on the day to raise a fantastic £300 for the charity which provides financial support to families of Police Donors who have lost their life or who are now unable to earn an income due to medical retirement. Our thanks go to Lorraine for all her hard work and effort in raising such an amazing amount, and to those who donated baking and raffle prizes. ... See MoreSee Less
