OK family life

If you have a family member or close friend who works in the police, we’re here for you too.

Working in policing throws up unique challenges and this can have a wider impact on the wellbeing of families.

You’ll find resources and support for families and friends in this section of our website.

Three-quarters of family members report feeling concerned about the wellbeing of a loved one who works in policing. Three in five say that balancing the demands of police work and family life is a challenge.

OK family life brings together resources and support for families and friends – including advice on living with a shift worker, nutrition tips for the whole family, and how to spot the signs of trauma and stress in a loved one.

You can also find us on social media: FacebookInstagramXLinkedIn.
