Ever felt like the rug has been pulled from under you and not sure who to turn to or what to do?  

The Sussex Police Charitable Trust supports members, including serving and retired Sussex Police Officers and staff, Special Constables and volunteers when they are experiencing problems. With a little understanding, and advice on what to do, many members are able to tackle their situation and turn things around for the better. If there's a financial impact, we may also be able to help with grants and interest free loans. If a member is in need of rest and recuperation, the SPCT own a bungalow in Dorset that members can use, free of charge.

If you're a member in need of support or know someone who could benefit from the Trust's help, please contact us by e-mailing our Trust Advisers on or calling 01273 470 101 extension 540703.

How To Join SPCT

Anyone employed by or volunteering for Sussex Police can become a member of the Trust. Membership costs just £2.50 per month and is deducted directly through payroll for serving Sussex Police Officers and staff member or through standing order for Special Constables and volunteers. Please click here to join the Trust via our online joining form.

Anyone who is a member of the Trust when retiring from Sussex Police remains a member for life. If a member passes away, the membership is transferred to the member's surviving spouse/partner.

"The Sussex Police Charitable Trust have been amazing. The Trust Adviser offered great support and has really made what was, and continues to be, a very stressful time for us a lot easier. The Trust has spent considerable funds in support of our family and are always there offering help with seemingly little things such as assistance through other organisations. They are there for all of us that work for Sussex Police - If you're not a member I really recommend you join. We are very lucky to have this level of support here at Sussex Police.”
