THE BEN FUND is an independent charity dedicated to supporting and caring for the police from recruitment into retirement. 

We are dedicated to supporting your physical and mental health and wellbeing. We understand that the police family has and continues to face unprecedented challenges. Whether facing Austerity with its impact upon terms and conditions, pay and pensions or on the frontline of supporting communities through the global health emergency, members of the police family face unique pressures. We are here to support you when you need us.
