Dear Members,

Myself, and the Chairman, Bob Good, attended the National Narpo Conference in Southport between 5th and 7th September. The conference was well attended by members from all over the country, nationally we are now totalling over 91 thousand members.

The theme of this years conference was Wellbeing and Pensions I attach links to some of the presentations given at the conference which you may find of interest.

The National Police Wellbeing Service


Widows Pension for Life Update


Connect Pensions for Life Campaign

September is Leukaemia Awareness month

Staying on the theme of wellbeing, one of our members was diagnosed with Acute myeloid leukaemia and is keen to raise awareness of this condition. His was diagnosed after months of being ill and quite often even GPs struggle to spot the symptoms.

Leukaemia Care provides vital support, information and advice to anyone whose life has been affected by a blood cancer. They not only support patients but carers and families too whose lives are impacted when someone they know receives a diagnosis.
