I am a serving Police Officer in the UK.
I have recently returned to work after almost 11 months off on Maternity leave and during this time I came up with the idea of starting a support group or organisation for police wives and partners here in the UK.
You will be surprised to find that although there are a number of organisations over in the USA there is nothing here in the UK to offer advice, help or support to wives and partners of Police Officers and support staff - I want to change that.
Any advice you can give me at all would honestly be greatly appreciated.I was surprised to learn that there isn't a support system in place for spouses and partners there. I also have no idea how one would go about beginning a group, but I know some of you do. Since I have no idea, I'm hoping that some of you can help, and I can just lead her here to the comments when I respond to her email. This was the very important question I was referring to yesterday. Also, did you notice she said 11 months of maternity leave?! Wow.
