Police communicators wellbeing toolkit

Welcome to the police communicators wellbeing toolkit.

This resource has been developed in collaboration with the Association of Police Communicators (APComm).

It is split into six key areas. We have chosen these areas as you have told us that they will make the most significant difference to the health and wellbeing of staff working in police communications roles.


The toolkit has been developed by those currently working in the field, and takes into consideration the different challenges police communicators are likely to face, such as major incidents, dealing with on-call duties and sleep deprivation, team resilience and agile working, tragedy involving children, or triggering incidents such as sexual assaults of domestic abuse.

The aim is to provide a range of advice, practical tips and shared experiences for those who are often exposed to significantly harmful material and investigation details as police officers, but don’t have the same training and mechanisms in place to deal with it.

We've split this toolkit into six key areas 

Please use the links below to find out more about each of the areas and don't hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any questions or feedback.
