We are the charity for serving and veteran police officers and staff, volunteers, and their families who have suffered any physical or psychological harm as a result of policing.
We are independent of the police service, and are funded entirely by donations and fundraising - we receive no money from government or forces for our work.

Policing has a lasting impact on the physical and psychological welfare of police officers and staff, volunteers, and their families. This affects them during and after service. That's why we provide confidential care for life.
We've cared for more than 10,000 serving and veteran police and their families come to terms with their situation, and rebuild their lives. Here are just a few of their stories.

The Wolf was Not Sleeping is a heart-warming bedtime story specially written by Avril McDonald to soothe the anxiety of children whose parents work as first responders and to help initiate emotional wellbeing conversations.

Police Care UK believes everyone should understand the dangers police face everyday, and how the harm they suffer can affect them and their families. Through improving awareness, we help develop appropriate services to support them, and reduce the shame of physical and psychological injuries so that people can get the care they need with dignity.
Police Care UK believes that police and families should always have someone to turn to that understands their situation and can respond effectively to their needs. By providing a specialist and confidential programme of practical, emotional, and financial support, we help more people effectively recover and rebuild their lives.
Police Care UK believes that caring for their people is the duty of every police organisation. Our role is to complement this care, and help identify gaps through targeted services, projects, and programmes.
