We are a professional association and union for the UK's senior public servants and professionals. We act as a powerful voice for public services and the people who deliver them.
Our growing and influential membership of more than 19,000 senior managers, government policy advisors, diplomats, tax professionals, economists, solicitors, prosecutors and other professionals work across government and the NHS.
As a professional association, we promote and protect our members' interests. We influence policy on their behalf, and provide networking opportunities and forums for considering matters of common interest.
We also help members develop their professionalism and skills. We have programmes to help members achieve their potential in the Professional Skills for Government programme and help them to further their careers.
