The Charity for Civil Servants makes an incredible impact on the lives of those people who come to us for support.
But we can't do it alone. It's only by working in partnership with many other organisations that we makes things happen.
And because we're building a lifelong community, we look for partners who share our values. The partners listed below all play their role in helping us support you and your financial dependants.
Civil Service Insurance Society (CSIS)
The Civil Service Insurance Society is a Not for Profit organisation, providing competitively priced home, motor and travel insurance to all current and former civil and public servants and their partners.
CSIS donates all available profits to the CSIS Charity Fund, an independent charity dedicated to helping current and former civil and public servants and their families to get through tough times in their lives. It has made grants to around 100 organisations including The Charity for Civil Servants, and supported the spouses of deceased policyholders, for more than a century. In the last decade some £7.5 million has gone to these causes, returning help to the communities from which the funds were generated.

Boundless is a membership club for working and retired public-sector and Civil Service employees, delivering amazing experiences and unforgettable days out for all the family.

Every year they support inspirational charities by donating funds raised through the dedicated Boundless Foundation Lottery. The money raised when people play the weekly lottery helps support those in need through various community support networks and makes a real difference to people’s lives. All funds raised are distributed to their chosen charities and The Charity for Civil Servants are delighted to be one of those selected to receive such incredible support.
