Civil Service Retirement Fellowship appointment
The Civil Service Retirement Fellowship has announced that Madeleine Alessandri CMG has been appointed as the organisation’s new National Honorary Chair with effect from the beginning of this year.
Madeleine is currently the Prime Minister’s Adviser on National Resilience and Security and UK Deputy National Security Adviser. She has been in government service since 1988 working in a number of overseas and UK postings with the Foreign & Commonwealth Office. She has recently been appointed the new Permanent Secretary at the Northern Ireland Office and will take up the post in February.
She will be supporting the launch of the CSRF’s new communications & marketing plan that will be focused on raising the profile of the charity and highlighting the important services they provide to former civil servants and their dependents.
Madeleine yesterday said:
I’m delighted to be joining the CSRF as its new Chair and I look forward to getting involved over the coming months.
Working with the Chief Executive and his outstanding team, we have an exciting year ahead. We will be boosting our profile across government and beyond to attract new donors and volunteers which will enable us to provide an even better service to our beneficiaries.
The CSRF was founded over 50 years ago as a charity to support former civil servants and their dependents. Its current services include a local community group network, national befriending schemes and the provision of information and advice. The charity receives no government funding and relies on fundraising activities and donations to support its work. It will be celebrating its 55th anniversary this year with events and activities around the country.
Further information is available on the Civil Service Retirement Fellowship website.
