Our first aim, which is well underway, is to raise one million pounds by 2013; three years on from our launch.
Care Of Police Survivors (COPS)
COPS is run by survivors for survivors. Membership is open to spouses, partners, children, parents and siblings of officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty.
Wiltshire Police Benevolent Trust
Since 2007 the Wiltshire Police Benevolent Trust became a registered charity, this changes our status which allowed the Trustees to help not only serving officers, retired officers, but police staff and their families too.
Over 15 years, thanks to your contributions we’ve been able to support hundreds of our policing family through difficult times, we have assisted with purchasing equipment to improve mobility and quality of life for several members.
The sort of things we’ve aided with include, the purchase of specialist equipment for a disabled child; Building works to facilitate wheelchair use and purchase of purpose made motorised scooter and trailer.
The current Trustees are:
The police officer donation of £2.13p which includes a donation to Wiltshire police benevolent Trust, The Gurney fund, and the Police Care UK.
Police staff, can only donate towards the Benevolent Trust, the 91p. This is due to the other two charities being for police officers.
You can also update your details if they’ve changed. If you would like to contribute into the fund, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your payroll number and authority to commence deductions.
