Pride of the Civil Service Awards 2017

The Civil Service vision sets out our shared ambition to be ‘A Brilliant Civil Service’: one that helps to keep the United Kingdom prosperous and secure, supporting the governments we serve in implementing their commitments and delivering high-quality services for the public.

They recognise the special skills and abilities developed by individuals whilst undertaking voluntary activity in local communities and celebrates what they bring to the organisation as a result.
