On 1st March 2022, the Gloucestershire Branch Council unanimously voted in favour of procuring a ‘Welfare Van’ after receiving positive feedback from members.
Supportive Leadership and Wellbeing are a priority for Gloucestershire Constabulary, and the Branch Board supported a paper to the share at the Branch Council Meeting to use Federation reserves to fund a Welfare van.
This van would be utilised to support Officers’ welfare whilst at scenes and large-scale events to remove the requirement to rely upon external companies and partners.
Whilst the details at this stage are still in its infancy, it is an important message to share of the Federation’s commitment to fulfil its statutory responsibility for the welfare and efficiency of its members.
Once further details are known, these will be shared accordingly.
