We can help any police harmed due to their policing role, and their families. This includes officers, staff, volunteers and veterans.
Harm could be psychological, physical, or both.
If you, a colleague, or a family member are employed by a UK police force and have suffered any physical or psychological harm as a result of your policing role, then you are eligible for support from Police Care UK. We also support those performing a recognised policing function in other organisations (such as UK Border Agency or Port of Dover Police). This includes all police officers, police staff (such as PCSO's, detention officers, call-handlers, and SOCO's), or police volunteers (such as special constables, custody visitors, and police cadets).
If you have been, but are no longer, employed by a UK police force (or an abolished force such as Hythe Borough Police, Blackpool Police, East Sussex Constabulary, Belfast Town Police, or Tayside Police), as a police officer, member of police staff, or a police volunteer, and have suffered any physical or psychological harm as a result of your policing role, then you are eligible for support from Police Care UK. This includes those who retire after full-service, are ill-health retired, or leave the service.
A spouse, child who is dependent on a serving or veteran police, or dependent former spouse, are eligible for support from Police Care UK if the support required is related to physical or psychological harm suffered by the officer or staff member.
