Further answers can be found on the Home Office FAQs on the employer's intranet. Please check these regularly as they are updated almost daily. If you don’t have access request a copy from your line manager or HR. Ask that you are sent an updated copy each time these are updated.

Details of local reps can be found on the branch contacts page

Like many members there are a number of PCS reps not in work or without access to their employer emails. Please be patient as PCS reps may not be able to respond straight away.

If you can’t get hold of a local PCS rep contact the group office on homeofficegroup@pcs.org.uk who will attempt to put you in touch with an appropriate PCS rep.

Ensure your personal details are up to date on PCS Digital. It’s important we have an up to date personal email and mobile number.
