The Charity for Civil Servants

Financial help, money and wellbeing services, advice and information for serving, former and retired staff of the Civil Service and employees of organisations sponsored by a government department, and their financial dependants. It does not help employees of the NHS, local/county councils or the Armed Forces.

Help toward Care Homes fees also considered up to £100 per week. It is always best for applicants or family members to telephone us first so that we can advise them of our requirements. Local Authority must be helping with fees.
