About us

We support current, former and retired civil servants when they face tough times.

We can’t prevent the tricky, stressful, sad stuff from happening but can help when it does.

We’ve been here for civil servants for generations, providing an umbrella of support when it’s needed.

Sheltered under our umbrella

Our vision is for a lifelong community of support where people offer effective support for each other when life takes a turn for the worse.

Our mission is to help current, former and retired civil servants overcome life’s challenges and thrive.

Our values are:

  • collaborative
  • confidential
  • understanding
  • helpful
  • progressive.
