The Metropolitan Police Benevolent Fund (the Fund) provides assistance to serving, and former Metropolitan Police Officers and their dependants in need.
The Fund receives contributions from serving Metropolitan Police officers for distribution:

- Provides financial assistance to deserving cases of widows’, widowers’ and partners of former officers.
- By channelling officers’ contributions from their salaries to the Police Rehabilitation Centre at Goring -on-Thames, which provides convalescence facilities for ill or injured police officers.
