A very merry Christmas to all our members

We’ve had another incredible year this year. We’ve welcomed a growing number of serving officers and police staff to the Benevolent Fund.

Supporting our members is at the heart of everything we do and throughout 2018 we have given;
• £500 in shopping vouchers every month to support colleagues off work due to injury, stress or illness.
• Over £40,000 in charitable grants to help serving and retired officers, police staff and their families.
• Almost £20,000 has been given to members for short convalescence or rehabilitation breaks following illness, surgery or injury.
• Nearly 300 people have enjoyed a family seaside break at our Dorset holiday home.
• Essential health and well-being support is available to all 7000 of our members
• Over £20,000 has been given out this year to support West Midlands Police widows and orphans

All of this would not be possible without the loyal support of our members. Thank you for your valuable monthly contributions.
