The Police Mutual Foundation supports the welfare of Police
Officers, Staff and their families at a time of increasing risks to
health and wealth.
It's a new and long-term initiative, funded by Police Mutual
Group. The Foundation provides:
- Research and analysis about how police employees' financial
well-being affects Force's performance
- Online health and wellbeing tools
- Mobile health screening
- Help with convalescence from illness, injury or trauma
Support for the Foundation reflects Police Mutual's values of
being passionate about Police welfare. It responds to a gap
in Police Charity provision, which is largely focused on the issue
of death or injury in service.

alternatively at police events and conferences where a bigger
target audience is often present.
Online health and wellbeing
The Foundation offers a free online tool to help members of the
Police Service, plus friends and family achieve a healthy,
stress-free and balanced lifestyle.
Foundation helps eligible Police Officers, Staff and their families
who need to 'get away from it all' because of trauma, illness,
family problems or other issues.
