How we help

The Police Dependants’ Trust provides targeted support and financial assistance to injured officers and the families of officers who have been killed or injured on duty. Because each individuals’ need is different, we have developed a series of broad programmes designed to benefit as many people as possible. To date, we helped over 7000 people with targeted support and financial assistance.

As an independent charity, we do not have clinical governance in place, and so the support we provide is not medical in nature, and the support provided should be considered in addition to that available through occupational health, the NHS, and other specialist provision available.

In each section you can read more about the grants and other support we provide, how they make a difference, and how to apply. We have included guidance notes to help you complete your application, and have also compiled a short list of our frequently asked questions. 

If you have any questions about the support we offer, or how to make an application, you can contact us here.
