The charity supports the children of serving and former officers of the Metropolitan Police and the City of London Police who subscribed to the Fund whilst serving and who are either deceased or retired on pension and are so incapacitated as to be unable to contribute materially to the family upkeep.
The Fund is administered on a day to day basis by the Chief and Deputy Chief Executives implementing the wishes of the Board of Management who have overall responsibility for the Charity. The Board meet on a monthly basis to consider applications to the fund and any other relevant business.
Our current funding is made up from donations by Police Officers, Public Donations either directly or by Legacy and Investment income. We are eternally grateful to all who have contributed since the charity was formed in 1870 and hope the present support will continue into the future so we are able to carry on the great vision bequeathed to us by our forefathers.
