About the Benevolent Fund
West Midlands Police Benevolent Fund was set up in 1974 after several local forces combined to form West Midlands Police.
It is financed by subscriptions from members and donations. And money raised supports serving officers, retired officers, police staff – and their families.
Grants and loans are considered by the Management Committee after an application is made by members who are suffering from financial hardship or are in need of help.
A team of Directors – all serving or retired officers – then have the final say and are accountable for how funds are spent.
