The Police Mutual Foundation

PMAS

The Police Mutual Foundation has launched a pilot respite scheme, specifically aimed to support
the retired police community.
Since its launch in 2011, Police Mutual has been supporting the wellbeing of police officers and
staff by offering a range of services.

Police Mutual’s  Head of Police Service Engagement, Claire Long says;
“For some time now we have been working hard to improve the wellbeing of the police family.
It is only right that this support should extend to those who have retired from the service.
We also appreciate that the health and wellbeing demands in retirement increase and that they
become more complex.  By working with NARPO, RPOAS and NIRPOA we hope to significantly
increase our support to this community in a meaningful and manageable way.”
 
The respite pilot aims to help those retirees who are either suffering from or caring for
someone with dementia.  Police Mutual will be working with a number of specialist providers
to source a respite break.  The breaks will be planned based on the demands of the people who
are being supported.  There are up to 20 breaks available between now and the end of the year,
with a view to extending the programme in 2017.
 
Branch chairs and secretaries can make nominations so if you know of someone who would
benefit from some time away, you can contact either foundation@pmas.co.uk or
call  01543 305351 for an application form or more information.
