Our Award Champions

Our Community Awards would not be possible without the generous donation from the Civil Service Insurance Society Charity Fund. This money is invaluable to our work, allows us to help people with a wide range of help services and recognise the great work of others.

Civil Service Insurance Society

The Civil Service Insurance Society (CSIS) is a not for profit organisation, providing specially negotiated home, motor and travel insurance to all current and former civil and public servants and your partners.

CSIS charges no administration fees of any kind and has won several awards for their trusted and transparent approach to insurance.

CSIS donates all its profits to the CSIS Charity Fund, an independent charity dedicated to helping current and former civil and public servants and their families to get through tough times in their lives. It has made grants to around 100 organisations including The Charity for Civil Servants, and supported the spouses of deceased policyholders, for more than a century. In the last decade some £7.5 million has gone to these causes, returning help to the communities from which the funds were generated.

Many thanks to the following organisations who would like to show their support for all the great activity happening at the Charity each day by putting their name to one of our Community Awards.
