CSIS sponsor the Civil Service Benevolent Fund celebrations at the Houses of Parliament for the start of the 125th anniversary of their in-house charity, and launch the European Year of Volunteering with Volunteering England.
Speakers at the event, including Nick Hurd MP, Minister for Civil Society and the Cabinet Secretary, and CSBF and CSIS President, Sir Gus O’Donnell, urged civil servants to get more involved in volunteering.
For the Fund, it was a chance to launch its new Volunteering film, Making Lives Better, to approx. 100 committed Fund supporters, decision-makers within government, and key stakeholders in the voluntary sector. The film was supported by CSIS and can be viewed below:
