Police Care UK–volunteers needed

Dear Colleagues,
As you know Police Care UK is the charity for serving and veteran police officers and staff, volunteers, and their families, who have suffered harm as a result of policing. We are independent of any police forces, so we are funded entirely by donations and fundraising. We receive no money from government or forces for our work.
Potential Beneficiaries can access practical, emotional and financial support that is confidential and impartial by submitting a referral. We can provide confidential care - for life. We have helped more than 10,000 serving and veteran police colleagues, and their families, come to terms with their situation, and rebuild their lives.
In 2019 alone, we have helped 502 families this year through our support services. We published the research from The Job and The Life in May, the UK's first force wide policing survey to assess trauma management and working conditions. We facilitated training in Suicide Awareness and Prevention for over 300 serving police officers and staff. We designed, developed and delivered our first Trauma Impact Processing Techniques course. We have provided £68,000 of funding to forces for small Wellbeing Grants. We established our strategic partnership with the Police Treatment Centres.
As a charity, we rely on assistance form our volunteers, but we need more help!
If you care about police our colleagues, please consider a volunteering opportunity which will fit around you, and in your area, by visiting our website. There’s no obligation, and we don’t pressurise our volunteers to do any more than they want to. Any out of pocket expenses are paid.
