On Tuesday 10th April 2018 the RUCGC-PSNI Benevolent Committee ratified a payment which has paved the way for PSNI officers to be able sign up to the St George’s Police Childrens Trust.
The St George’s Police Children Trust is a registered charity which provides support to Police families by helping ease the financial pressures of bringing up children in the face of life-changing circumstances. Support is given to children who have lost either parent (whether or not they are a Serving or Retired Police Officer) or whose Police Officer parent is unable to earn an income due to illness or injury, sustained on or off duty. Support from the Charity can provide a degree of financial certainty in difficult times and is provided for on or off duty incidents to families of police officers who donate to the Trust.
Support can include:
- New Beneficiary Grant
- Weekly Support Allowance for each child in the family,
- Seasonal Gifts,
- Higher Education Grants,
- Ex-gratia Grants for necessary activities or items,
- Special Needs Grants,
- Driving Lesson Grants
- Child Counselling Grants,
- One week’s respite break at our holiday home in Harrogate and any subsequent visits at discounted rates.
