  • Mission statement

    The only Civil Service charity dedicated to helping retired civil servants, widows/widowers, partners and dependants enjoy a better and more fulfilling retirement. We operate a range of welfare, volunteering and leisure activities all run and supported by volunteers.

    Our two national befriending schemes, the Phone Buddy scheme and National Visitors Network provide telephone based friendship calls and home visits to any beneficiary experiencing loneliness or social isolation.

  • Aims

    • To expand the impact of our national befriending schemes by recruiting more people to enable us to deliver more support to older people experiencing loneliness
