Police Care UK makes sure both serving and former colleagues who suffer harm, and their families, have someone to turn to when things get tough.
Find out more about the people reducing the impact of harm on police and families including our Trustees, Ambassadors, and spokespeople.
HM The Queen has been Patron of Police Care UK since 1968, having agreed to a request from the founding trustees of the Police Dependants' Trust shortly after our formation.
Since then, she has attended the Royal World Premiere of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang in December 1968, which raised vital funds for the charity. Her Majesty was accompanied at the event by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, HRH Prince Charles (laterly HRH The Prince Wales), and HRH Princess Anne (laterly HRH The Princess Royal).
In June 2016, the charity joined the celebrations for our patron's birthday at the iconic Patron's Lunch which publicly thanked her for 48 years of support.
The National Police Fund (which became part of Police Care UK in 2019), was fortunate to have considered HM King George V as its patron and sponsor, having granted it a Royal Charter in 1926 - it was surrendered in 2018 in preparation of the merging with Police Care UK.
