If you find yourself in difficult times we’re here to lend support – whether it’s physical, mental or emotional. Our Occupational Health Unit, Wellbeing programme and Force Chaplain all provide the assistance you might need. Plus joining the Police Federation or UNISON trade union entitles you to all kinds of support, including legal and financial advice.
On the other hand, when things go well we like to celebrate them. As well as our Rewards and Recognition programme, we hold an annual awards ceremony where we take pride in the excellent work done throughout the year.
We’re all part of one #policingfamily – during good times and bad.
We know that people need to be at their best personally to perform well professionally. Our in-house wellbeing programme ‘Lifestyle Matters’ provides advice and support in four major areas:
Our Occupational Health Unit offers health screening for anyone who would like it, and annual medicals for certain roles
Our force physical training instructor offers fitness support to individuals and groups, whether you’re a new probationer going through training, or a member of staff struggling to reach the required fitness standard for your role
We can help fund a course of physiotherapy if you need it
We can refer you to police treatment centres in various UK locations if you need treatment to get back to full health following illness or injury (police officers, PCSOs, Specials and custody detention officers)
The NWP Sports Association includes a wide range of sporting clubs and competitions – join in and keep fit and healthy while making new friends!
