Members Area / Charities
There are a number of charitable organisations who are there to support police officers and their families. You can find their details and the fantastic work they do in this booklet.
Here are some of the charities which we support.
The Gurney Fund
The Fund may help children not only of Police Officers who have died, but of those who have taken early retirement on ill-health grounds within the 22 subscribing Forces of which Hampshire Constabulary is one.
Please find in pdf format the latest Gurney Fund newsletter, the Fund is a charity which helps support the children of officers we have lost or who have been medically retired. This is a fantastic charity which we are proud to support.

Defence Medical Welfare Service (DMWS)
The Deference Medical Welfare Service (DMWS) works in partnership with the Hampshire Police Federation to extend the existing welfare support for Police Officers, staff or family members of Hampshire Constabulary. This is a new initiative which has seen the DMWS extend their world renowned welfare support service to policing.
Pensions for Paws
Pensions 4 paws support retired Police Dogs from Hampshire and Thames Valley.
We are run purely by volunteers, so ALL money raised goes to supporting the dogs.
When a Police Dog retires they receive no financial assistance, all the cost of care and ongoing treatment falls upon the new owner.
Our mission is to support these courageous dogs who have worked long hours protecting both the public and their handlers
Police Dependents Trust
Since the 1960's, the Police Dependants' Trust has been providing financial support to police officers and their families in the event of that officer being killed or seriously incapacitated while on duty.
The Trust has recently updated its User Guide. The Trust is keen to have that guide widely circulated to those who might need the Trust or who assist officers and families to access the Trust for support.
Care of Police Survivors (COPS)
Care of Police Survivors (otherwise known as COPS) is a UK registered charity dedicated to helping the families of police officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty, rebuild their lives. It aims to ensure that survivors have all the help they need to cope with such a tragedy, and that they remain part of the police family.
The National Police Memorial Day
The aims of the National Police Memorial Day are to remember police officers who have been killed or died on duty and to demonstrate to relatives, friends and colleagues of fallen officers that their sacrifice is not forgotten.
Flint House Rehabilitation centre
Flint House is there to provide a high standard of individually planned, intensive, rehabilitation and convalescent care programmes for sick and injured, serving and retired police officers
