Who we are
We are part of Cabinet Office but based in our regions.
Our purpose is to bring together departments and agencies within each locality to deliver actions and opportunities that will bring the new vision to life and encourage more of us to be part of it - helping us become a Brilliant Civil Service.
Through better participation the Civil Service will achieve the cultural shift needed to turn vision into reality and our role is to be a catalyst in that process.

Social Media Policy
Our social media accounts are run by a team of editors working within the regional teams supported by Hazel Hetherington and John Haskey. Our accounts are used to communicate Civil Service Local messages primarily for currently serving Civil Servants, but of general interest beyond.
Editors may highlight content from other accounts, for example by commenting, liking or retweeting (depending on the platform) but this does not constitute any kind of endorsement.
Editors may also decide to connect on networks or to follow other accounts. This also does not constitute an endorsement and requests will not influence actions.
We regret that we may not be able to respond to all requests/messages/comments we receive via social media. On occasion we may respond generally to a number of questions at once rather than deal with each individually.
How to make suggestions or complain about our services.
- Please send comments, complaints and compliments to Kathie Bates the Head of Civil Service Local
- Or comment directly on the blog posts (Please also read our Comments and moderation policy)
