Fund Secretary

Gary Sutton on 01622 653066.


The Committee makes loans on welfare grounds on such terms or conditions as it sees fit.

Death Grant

This Grant is currently £1,250, and is normally payable of the death of the member or his or her spouse, whichever is the first to die. By arrangement with the  fund administrator, it may be paid on the death of the second.


The Management committee will pay travelling and out of pocket expenses for members who attend the Rehabilitation Centre for Convalescence [Flint House, Goring], where a welfare need exists.

Medical Consultations

A grant or loan may be paid to enable a member, spouse or child of that member under 18 years to enable them to seek private medical tests or consultations where assistance is not reasonably readily available under the NHS within a reasonable time frame.


Grants may be made at the discretion of the Management Committee. Currently grants up to £350 are made without the requirement for detailed financial information being provided by the applicant. Applications in excess of this amount will not be granted without detailed financial information and such application will almost always be supported by a comprehensive report. Retired Officer’s and their partners can obtain the assistance of their local NARPO welfare representatives. Welfare representatives for this branch are Bruce Goldfarb and Terry Lynch.

 For further assistance or information please contact Bruce Goldfarb. If you don’t ask , you’ll never know!

All welfare cases, enquires and information is kept strictly confidential.
