The St George's Police Children Trust is a registered charity which provides support of a financial nature to children and young people whose police officer parent has either lost their life or had an injury/illness, whilst on or off duty, preventing them from being able to work.
Police officers are very often the first responders to serious accidents and dangerous incidents, which can sometimes result in the unthinkable happening. While no amount of money can replace a parent, support from the Charity can provide a degree of financial certainly in difficult times and is provided for on or off duty incidents.
Each year the St George's Police Children Trust supports more than 300 children and young people.
More than half a million pounds is distributed by the Charity to police families every year. This work is partly funded by serving police officers who make a weekly donation from their pay of just 20 pence.
Support the Charity, and together we can help safeguard the future of our police officer's children.
