Police Dependants Trust Needs Your Help
The Police Dependants’ Trust was formed by the public over fifty years ago with a clear mission: to provide a lifeline to officers injured on duty and to take care of loved ones left behind when killed on duty.
71% of those who have left the police service because of an injury on duty said they were still receiving ongoing support. The Police Dependants’ Trust exists to aid those seriously injured due to the hazards of police work and we need volunteers to help us raise awareness of how we can help and provide a local, personalised service to those in need.
We currently have five Ambassadors in Kent but we need more. You could be our local representatives; raising awareness about the Trust by conducting presentations, holding stands and helping us reach more officers affected by injury.
We also need to recruit for a new role. Support volunteers will make contact and visit those registered with us, helping them apply for grants, being a listening ear and signposting to other organisations.
Full training and support will be provided for and once inducted volunteering times will be flexible ranging from 2 – 8 hours a month. If you are interested please contact us at Volunteer@PDTrust.org or check out our website: https://www.pdtrust.org/support-us/volunteer/ambassador/
Closing date for applications is 30th April 2018
