POLICE BENEVOLENT FUND
We are professional, independent and confidential and we can help.
WE ARE THE
NORTH WEST POLICE
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.
Physiotherapy and Counselling are available in your Force area or at St Michael’s Lodge. Holistic therapies are also available at St Michael’s Lodge.
St Michael’s Lodge, located between Whalley and Blackburn, is our flagship state-of-the-art holistic treatment centre with first class facilities for members including physiotherapy treatment, counselling, wellbeing, mental health support, holistic therapy treatment, Hydrotherapy treatment, Pilates classes and much more.
A welcome respite and bespoke solutions are here for you.
CARE & SUPPORT
Whilst St Michael’s Lodge is our primary facility, we have satellite centres in Greater Manchester, Merseyside, Cumbria and Cheshire and have referral connection with other delivery partners across the North West. So you can access support in the most appropriate and relevant location for you.
ST MICHAEL’S LODGE
St Michael’s Lodge is located in the picturesque Ribble Valley on the outskirts of historic Whalley. The Lodge offers convalescent stays to members across 24 well proportioned en-suite bedrooms, two of which are adapted for wheelchair users, all fully equipped with remote control TV, hairdryer and tea and coffee making facilities.
Relax in our comfortable TV lounge area or our splendid orangery room where internet access is available for use by guests. Partake in the gym and fitness classes or heated swimming pool, sauna and hot tub.
