Metropolitan & City Police Orphans Fund

Formerly the metropolitan & City Police Orphanage

Our forefathers had the vision to see the need to support families of Police Officers from London whose Police Officer parent had died or was so incapacitated they were unable to provide for their families. 

As well as looking after children in the Orphange they provided financial assistance to those who could not be accomodated in the Orphanage. This is continued to the present day and in total over 15,000 children have been and curently are receiving support.

In 2017 we were honoured HRH The Duke of Cambridge agreed to become our Patron and attend an event for our families at the Guildhall, to mark the 80th Anniversary of the closure of the Orphanage.

Now in 2020 we are extremely proud The Duke of Cambridge has agreed once again to meet our families whilst hosting a reception at St James's Palace on Wednesday 12th February 2020.

It cannot be underestimated the pride our families feel knowing they are supported when they suffer a tragic loss or a severe injury.  They have commented that they feel better knowing that someone in the Duke's position takes an interest in their welfare and education.

We would also like to thank the sponsors of the event which would not be possible without their support.
