Pace in Benefits

As a civil servant there are several benefits open to you, from financial advice and support, to clubs and societies. 

Last updated - 6th April 2011

CSSC Sports and Leisure 

The CSER benefits offer is a joint project that brings together CSER and CSSC Sports and Leisure who have worked together to provide an offer which:

• Allows free access for all civil servants to a small number of time limited discounts and;
• Introduces civil servants to CSSC’s full offer comprising of 1000s of discounts plus access to social and sporting activities, all of which are available for a membership fee of £3.50 a month.


The discount offers will change every two months in order to provide a selection that caters to all tastes and that suit the time of year e.g school holidays, Easter etc.

The scheme has the full backing of Sir Gus O’Donnell, who supports the project’s ethos to promote belonging to the civil service community. This is particularly pertinent at the present time when many colleagues are leaving the Civil Service as membership of CSSC can be retained. It therefore provides a way to maintain a link with former colleagues and the civil service.

Employee Assistance Programmes

Do you need confidential, one to one, professional help or advice on stress, bereavement, bullying and harassment, debt, child or caring responsibilities and a range of other personal issues?

All staff have access to staff counselling and welfare services provided by their department. Your HR team or HR guide will have the details of all the services on offer to you and the different ways to access them, by phone and in some cases on line, for which a password maybe required.

However as all the providers we know of operate a phone service, we have listed their details including whether they have a website you could access.  If and when you ring, just remember to say which department you are from, as it will help them to help you.
