PCS in the south west

PCS staff in the Wales & South West hub are working hard to provide PCS members with support and advice during this difficult and uncertain time. The office premises at Tony Benn House, Bristol will be closed from Monday 23 March until further notice

General queries can be emailed to southwestregion@pcs.org.uk . The office landline number 0117 925 1600  is still in use and will be checked daily. Members are asked to leave their name and contact number and a member of our team will get back to you as soon as we can.

If you have any branch officers who are ill or self-isolating, please update the regional office via email address shown above with your new contact so that we can pass members to the right person for them. 

This is a difficult and uncertain time for us all but we will ensure that your union continues to fight for your interests.


The PCS South West regional office is located in Tony Benn House, Bristol.

The south west office serves the 15,000 PCS members who live and work in Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Dorset, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire and Bristol.

The main aims of the office can be summarised as follows:

  • Assisting branches in the South West in recruitment and organising issues

  • Campaigning on national and local issues

  • Organising trade union education in the region

  • Playing a full role within the south west TUC

South West TUC

At the SWTUC 2019 annual conference James Davies (PCS south west regional secretary), Hannah David (Historic England) and Matt Hollinshead (PCS south west Organising Officer) were elected to the executive committee, and Roger Thomas (Planning Inspectorate) and Gillian Foxton (DfE South West) will be our delegates to the regional council. Hannah has been elected to the position of vice president of the SWTUC Executive.
