Introduction to the fund

It is accepted, worldwide, that the Royal Ulster Constabulary George Cross, [RUCGC] was the main stabilizing force that provided the conditions for the “Belfast Peace Agreement”. Sadly over the years in providing that crucial stability, many police families lost their loved ones and members of the RUCGC suffered serious injury. Indeed, current members of the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) have paid the ultimate price and others continue to endure serious injury and threats.

The objects of the Charity are to relieve hardship, need and distress by means of monetary gifts or loans.  The RUCGC-PSNI Benevolent Fund supports serving PSNI officers, retired RUCGC & PSNI officers, disabled and injured officers both serving and ex members, widows, dependants and parents of deceased officers. In all instances a case of need must be identified.

The Royal Ulster Constabulary George Cross – Police Service of Northern Ireland Benevolent Fund is a registered charity with the Northern Ireland Charity Commission (Charity Number: NIC104568) that aims to address the most deserving cases. All requests that come before the Management Committee are confidential and each case is very carefully considered on its merits.
