Tim Jackson QPM retires from the board of Trustees

Today was the last trustee meeting for former chair Tim Jackson QPM after serving a full term.

Joining the board in 2014, Tim went on to become Chair of Trustees in 2015, stepping down after a full term of 3 years.

Mark Lindsay, current Chairman of Police Dependants’ Trust said, “Tim’s passion, dedication, and commitment to reducing the impact of harm on police and families has seen a charity transformed. We have  a new sense of purpose, and a determination to help more in need thanks to Tim’s hard work as a Trustee and Chair of the board.”

Jackson, who  served as an officer with Cheshire Constabulary, joined the board of Trustees at Police Dependants’ Trust as nominated representative from the Police Superintendents Association where he was National Secretary. Retiring from the service in 2018, he was asked to continue on the board as an independent member for a further year to support as it undertook  a service review.

On his retirement, Tim Jackson said, “It has been an honour and a privilege to have been a part of the Police Dependants’ Trust. With serving and former colleagues, and their families, suffering harm because of their policing role, the importance of organisations like the PDT make a difference to the quality of life for those in need every day.”

Working with the Chief Executive, Jackson oversaw the expansion of the Police Dependants’ Trust to include support for police staff as well as officers and cadets; commissioned the widely regarded research, Injury on Duty; and saw the introduction of the Volunteer Ambassador programme now active in more than 25 forces nationwide.

His last day as a trustee was 24th January 2019.
