Focused on the future
The PST was set up in 2002 with Government funding with the intention to address the needs of the wider Prison Service family to include widows/widowers, dependants of murdered staff and those who have died in service, medically retired Officers and the dependants of those medically retired. Please note medically retired staff must apply within 6 months of medical retirement.

The PST is aiming to establish and develop a fund for those not supported through the money received from the Department of Justice; I.E Age retired Officers, serving Officers and their immediate dependants.

The fund will help provide health care, life planning and support services to benefit them and their family. These services will only be available to age retired Officers who donate to the No.3 account and serving Officers who donate to the No.2 account.

Do you know if you are a serving Officer you can donate to the PST through your salary?
