Do you know how important your donation could be to The Police Children’s Charity?

Everyday our Police Forces put themselves in risky situations to ensure our communities are protected so we feel safe and secure in the places we live.

Did you know?

Every 27 minutes, a Police Officer is assaulted in the UK. And. 54 Officers are attacked on the streets every day.

Our Police Forces put their lives on the line every day to keep our neighbourhoods and communities safe and free from crime. Sometimes the unimaginable will happen resulting in loss of life or injury/illness preventing them being able to continue working and this has a huge impact on Police Families.

While no amount of money can replace a Parent, support from the Charity can provide a degree of financial certainly in these difficult times and is provided for on or off duty incidents.

Making a donation today really would make a huge difference to the care and support we can provide to these children and young people.

What your donation could support

  • £50 could fund a child’s weekly needs i.e. food/travel/extra curricula activities etc.
  • £100 could buy a one week stay at our Holiday Home for all recently bereaved families.
  • £300 could help fund a recently bereaved family’s first Christmas.
  • £500 could offer a recently bereaved family the chance for a holiday.
  • £1500 could help part fund a student’s tuition fees.

Legacy FAQ

Gift Aid is a really easy way to make your gift go further

Gift Aid doesn’t cost you or the Charity a penny either! We claim a refund on tax that you have already paid.

Gift Aid allows The Police Children’s Charity to claim an extra 25% on donations, all thanks to the taxman.

So, if you are a taxpayer and donate £10, it is then worth £12.50 to The Police Children’s Charity.

This means as well as making your donation worth 25% more, Gift Aid helps us to provide 25% more care to police officers in need of our help

To Gift Aid your donation, all you need to do is complete the Gift Aid declaration when you make a donation.

You only need to complete the Gift Aid declaration once too! After that, we know we can claim Gift Aid on all your future donations unless you let us know you have moved house or are no longer a taxpayer.
