National Welfare Contingency Fund

The National Welfare Contingency Fund is a £250,000 fund that has been made available by the Police Dependants’ Trust to support the mental health needs of police officers following a major terrorist, or other national, incident.

The fund will allow all affected officers to have a personalised care plan following a major incident such as a plane crash or a mass shooting, for example.

The fund will be available to assist in cases where the National Police Coordination Centre (NPOCC) has been triggered in response to a major terrorist incident or a national incident requiring provision of significant mutual aid. We will liaise with staff at NPOCC, the Police Federation and Occupational Health but the final decision to release funds will rest with us.
