Established on 9 April 1965, the Civil Service Retirement Fellowship is 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.
We currently have two national befriending schemes, the Phone Buddy scheme and National Visitors Network which provide telephone based friendship calls and home visits to any beneficiary experiencing loneliness or social isolation.
Thanks to support received from the Civil Service Insurance Society Charity Fund we have also launched the Carers Support Scheme, a new pilot in 2016/17, to offer free respite days for older carers. The pilot closed at the end of 2016 and we are currently exploring future opportunities that we can maintain support for those of our beneficiaries who are older carers.
In addition, we are also available to offer signposting, help and advice on a whole range of subjects.
