This survey is the second of its kind and is part of ongoing work to understand experiences and the awareness about menopause amongst police officers and police staff. The first survey was conducted in 2018.
The present survey is a joint project being conducted by researchers at the Police Federation of England and Wales (PFEW), and on behalf of PFEW, Unison, the Police Superintendents' Association, the National Police Chiefs' Council, the Police Service of Northern Ireland and the Civil Nuclear Constabulary.
The findings from the Menopause Survey 2023 will provide us with crucial evidence to understand and support police officers, staff, managers and chief officers.
The survey does not seek to make any medical evaluations.
