How Can You Help Us?

From running befriending schemes and local meetups, to giving practical advice that keeps people safe and well, we are here for everyone in the civil service family.

But we need your support.

Donating to our charity will help us provide more life-changing support and resources, so that more retired civil servants feel connected and cared for – when they need it most.

Getting a phone call, or receiving a letter, can mean the world to a retired civil servant struggling with loneliness and isolation. Being a CSRF befriender can also be incredibly rewarding for you. (Some of our members are in their nineties and have some amazing stories to tell.)

The CSRF also brings retired civil servants together through local community groups across the UK. These friendship forums running activities such as coffee mornings, walks, trips and lunches out.

Today, many civil service jobs are no longer for life. But with your help, our community can be.
