The Police Treatment Centres are Honoured and Pleased to Welcome HRH The Princess Royal, as our new Patron.
We are delighted to announce that The Princess Royal has agreed to become the Patron of the Police Treatment Centres (PTC). As our new Patron, we look forward to welcoming Her Royal Highness to our Centres to see first-hand the work that we do.
The CEO of the PTC Patrick Cairns said, “For Her Royal Highness to convey her support for the Police Treatment Centres by becoming our Patron is a tremendous honour for our charity, and it is clear that The Princess Royal understands the challenges that the Police Service are currently under and the work that we do at the PTC in treating ill and injured police officers for a range of physical and mental health injuries.”
Her Royal Highness started undertaking public work at the age of 18, when her first engagement was the opening of an educational and training centre in Shropshire in 1969. Since then, she has established significant and ongoing relationships with a number of charities and organisations across the Commonwealth and has one of the busiest working schedules of any member of the Royal Family.
The previous Princess Royal, Mary, Countess of Harewood was the Police Treatment Centre’s Patron from 1953 – 1965.
