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.

Another lovely message form one of our beneficiary families.
"As always we had a lovely time. We took a day trip up to Whitby and our usual walk around Harrogate and the gorgeous park. Here are the children outside the house as usual, I can't believe how much they've grown over the years.
Thanks once again for a wonderful stay from us all."
