PANSW Branch Welfare Officers Course | April

Wednesday 28 April, 2021-Thursday 29 April 2021

The PANSW Branch Welfare Officers training course helps members learn to identify, support and facilitate assistance for their fellow members in times of need. The role of the local Branch Welfare Officer is to assist each Command in identifying officers who need assistance through NSW Police services and/or those who require PANSW assistance including circumstances such as:

  • Injuries/illnesses whilst off duty  
  • Seriously injured on duty
  • Suffering a serious or life threatening illness (Families included)
  • Members/Spouses/Dependents with Terminal Illnesses

The BWO uses their local relationships to contact the member or use a proxy where appropriate to make sure any affected member is aware of entitlements and assistance and refers them to the experts at PANSW. This assistance includes:

  • Advice related to entitlements
  • Advice related to the use of the Income Protection Scheme
  • Legal Assistance
  • Access to the Welfare Assistance Scheme
  • and more

This program is designed to compliment the many services the NSWPF provide not to conflict, the focus is on the welfare of our members at whatever rank.
