Police Care UK
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.
We provide practical, emotional and financial support that is confidential, independent and accessible.
The Police Charities UK group is a consortium of charities working in the policing environment.
St George's Police Childrens Trust
This is a national fund.
A registered Charity run from St Andrews (the Police Treatment Centre in Harrogate).
We try and help ease the financial pressures of bringing up a family when life changing circumstances such as the loss of either parent or an injury or illness to the Police Officer parent means they can no longer work.
Financial support to Police Officer’s children and young people is provided by the Charity throughout their school years and in many cases, into further education. More than 300 children are supported every year.
Support is of a financial nature and may range from a weekly allowance for each child in the family, support through further and higher education, driving lesson grants, support for child counselling and ex-gratia grants for necessary activities or items.
While no amount of money can replace a parent, support from the Trust can provide a degree of financial certainty in difficult times.
We now also offer a one week’s respite stay at our holiday home in Harrogate to all new beneficiaries and / or subsequent visits at discounted rates. Our holiday home aims to provide an opportunity for families to come together and escape the recent stresses they might be facing at home.

The Police Treatment Centre
The Police Treatment Centres is a registered charity which provides treatment and support, including intensive, police-specific, physiotherapy and rehabilitation, for injured and ill police officers and retired officers.
Police officers are very often the first responders to serious accidents and dangerous incidents, dealing with death, distress and aggression. They have to see and hear things that other members of the public would simply not be able to cope with (- Martis Media/Police Oracle). The Police Treatment Centres provide police specific treatment for any on or off duty injury. Whether it is a physical injury, or stress, depression, anxiety related, treatment is provided to help them recover and aid their return back to work.
Almost 4000 serving and retired officers attend one of the two Treatment Centres each year at either St Andrews, in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, or Castlebrae in Auchterarder, Perthshire.
For just a small donation you could have the comfort of knowing we will be there for you if you are injured or ill, through treatment, support & recuperation, including intensive, police-specific, physiotherapy and rehabilitation. Don’t forget, it doesn’t matter if your injury occurs on or off duty – it could have occurred playing football or even walking the dog.
Around 60% of the Police Family members within our service area contribute to the PTC and so are eligible for free treatment.
If you are in the minority who don’t, take a fresh look at the PTCs and see how you too could benefit from what we can offer.
