Police Charities UK & Useful Resources

Police Charities UK (PCUK)

Police Children’s Fund is a member of Police Charites UK (PCUK) which is a unique group of police charities who collaborate for the benefit of serving and former members of UK police forces and their families.

Each member charity is unique, meeting different needs within the policing community and we meet twice a year to identify opportunities of working together to further the charitable objects of each charity.

Here at Police Children’s Fund we often receive enquiries for support from officers and their families where sadly, the specific need does not fall within our charitable objects and this is where PCUK proves to be helpful. Police Children’s Fund is proud to be a member of this group.

We are always happy to point people in the direction of other organisations who might be able to help and a few of them are listed here.
