Care In The Police Family
“Alleviating suffering resulting from terrorist attacks on police families by providing continuing support for them and their families”.
The fund's work focuses on direct grants to injured serving and ex-officers and the families of those killed in terrorist incidents. This funding is distributed under three main groupings.
The Northern Ireland Police Fund (“the Fund”) was set up in late 2001 as a government response to the Independent Commission on Policing for Northern Ireland, Patten Recommendation 87, as reviewed by John Steele.
The Fund is a private company limited by guarantee, with the Chief Executive as Accounting Officer for the funds it receives from central government. The Fund is currently 100% funded by government.
Its remit is to provide support to those police officers injured as a result of terrorist violence, and their families, and the widows, children and parents of officers killed in terrorist incidents. The Fund has an annual budget of £1.8m per year for the provision of these services.

Personal Support Scheme
The Fund has introduced a ‘General Support Scheme’ to offer financial assistance to ex police officers and their widows/widowers and parents who are experiencing financial hardship as a result of bereavement, injury or disability.
General Support Scheme
The Fund will provide support to clients who need and would benefit from home help services, befriending, care provision, assistance with cleaning, gardening or shopping and access to special transport where public services are inadequate or inappropriate.
