The Civil Service currently has over 20 cross-government staff networks. These networks provide a space for people from underrepresented groups to feel a sense of community and be supported.
Our networks promote a positive workplace culture and raise awareness of issues affecting groups of people in the Civil Service.
The Civil Service Disability Network (CSDN) provides advice and information to support policy development by engaging with departments to form and change working practices. We act as a link between senior management and people with disabilities and long-term health conditions.
CSDN has a number of sub-networks which support and offer community to employees with specific disabilities and long-term health conditions.
“Being part of the Civil Service LGBT+ Network is a great way to meet and network with kindred spirits from other departments in the Civil Service. I feel privileged to be part of leading our social events in the capital city, and honoured to help organise the Civil Service to march in the 50th London Pride.”

Race to the Top G7/6
The Race to the Top Grade 6/7 Network is a community of BAME G6/7 civil servants across all government departments and agencies. The network’s overarching intention is to help BAME G6/7s thrive and progress, helping to address BAME underrepresentation in the Senior Civil Service. The network supports members by helping to increase preparedness for leadership at the next levels, strengthening personal networks with peers and senior leaders and providing a stronger collective voice.
The Cross-Government Mental Health Network aims to connect networks to share best practices and promote mental health and wellbeing at work.
