What services do you provide?
At the top of what our Branch provides is welfare support and assistance and more information can be found on the “Welfare and Well Being” page of this site.
The Branch itself offers few “services” itself, i.e. financial advice, however the national NARPO website contains information on many such services and special offers on its “Homepage”, this is the link to it…. https://www.narpo.org/
The national website even has details of apartments and villas in Italy, which are free to NARPO members, other than the flights out there! …….. yes that’s TRUE !!
All you need to do is visit the link and take it from there : –

What do I need to do if my partner/relative who is a member dies?
This is a traumatic time and on our Welfare and Well Being page there is advice about how to contact the relevant local Pension Provider.
Please do not hesitate to contact our Welfare Coordinator on 07516 939228 or our Branch Secretary on 07805 953771 if any further help or advice is saught, we are here to help you in your time of need.
Those who receive a widow/widowers pension are able to become a NARPO member in their own right and we welcome them with open arms, even in these modern times we are still a “Police Family” and look to support and comfort our own.
How do I support the Pension for Life Campaign?
This is an extract from the letter written by Mrs Tessa Roddy, widow of PC Martin Roddy MBE, to Alex Chalk MP for Cheltenham and PPS to the Foreign Secretary and First Secretary of State….
“Martin spent 30 years of his life paying into, and paying tax on, the pension payments that affected us both financially over the years. A pension that I now pay tax on. I would lose that pension, my sole income, simply because I had found a companion. Is that fair? I don’t think it is. To tell me, at 56 years old, that I face a lifetime of being alone unless I am prepared to give up my income. Martin earned that pension serving Queen and country. It would place me in a dreadful dilemma and would be disrespectful to the memory of Martin Roddy MBE.”
If you are also affected by this injustice please write to your MP, there is further information on the national NARPO website at the link below : –
