NORTH WEST
POLICE BENEVOLENT FUND

The Ben Fund supports officers, both serving and retired, who are experiencing mental, physical or hardship difficulties. None of us know when we may find ourselves in need – a family crisis, a sudden bereavement, an unexpected illness or a work related issue. Such things affect everyone, we are all vulnerable to life’s events! It is comforting to know that the North West Police Benevolent Fund is there to care and support.

We are professional, independent and confidential and we can help.

WE ARE THE
NORTH WEST POLICE
BENEVOLENT FUND

We understand that policing is more than a job – protecting the public is a vocation which, whilst rewarding, presents its own unique set of stresses and strains. The Ben Fund has a comprehensive offer which can be tailored to meet the specific needs of each individual. We are here to support you through your service and into your retirement.

Our Mission Statement

To support officers of Cheshire Constabulary, Greater Manchester Police, Merseyside Police, Lancashire Constabulary, Cumbria Constabulary and NCA, retired officers of those and previous police forces amalgamated within the constituent forces, together with their dependants, who are in a condition of need and hardship or distress.
