The latest advice on the legal challenge to the CARE Pension Scheme
The PFEW has now circulated the attached document to try to answer some of the queries on the legal challenge being proposed against the CARE Pension Scheme. It reiterates that the PFEW will not fund a challenge at this time and, importantly, highlights some of the caveats you need to consider if wondering on which course of action you should take.

Police Dependants' Trust
The Police Dependants' Trust is the charity that supports the welfare of police officers and their families. Every week police officers suffer injuries that have a huge impact on their lives and in some cases prevent them from being able to work and support their families. Tragically, there are also those officers who simply don’t return home from their shift. For their loved ones, life changes in an instant. The Trust provides support to officers who have been injured on duty, and to the families of those officers who have lost their lives in the line of their police work; you can read more about the nature of that support at www.pdtrust.org or by contacting your local Federation office.
