We were delighted to attend the AGM for the Police Treatment Centres Charity and to be given a tour of facilities at St Andrews Rehabilitation Centre, Harrogate. The Star Benevolent Fund has been supporting the Centres and over many years, made a contribution in partnership with NARPO.
The Police Treatment Centres is a registered charity which provides treatment, recuperation, support and rest, including intensive, police-specific, physiotherapy and rehabilitation, for injured and ill police officers and retired officers.
Police officers are very often the first responders to serious accidents and dangerous incidents, dealing with death, distress and aggression. They have to see and hear things that other members of the public would simply not be able to cope with (- Martis Media/Police Oracle). The Police Treatment Centres provide police specific treatment for any on or off duty injury. Whether it is a physical injury, or stress, depression, anxiety related, treatment and recuperation are provided to help them recover and aid their return back to work.
Almost 4000 serving and retired officers attend one of the two Treatment Centres each year at either St Andrews, in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, or Castlebrae in Auchterarder, Perthshire.
