Public Service Day 2020

Public Service Day was launched by the United Nations in 2003 to celebrate the contribution those in the public sector and civil service make to our society. Although so much has changed this year, one thing hasn’t – our public-service workers have been keeping the country going. They don’t ask for applause, but they could use all our support for this Public Service Day on 23 June.

More than 'thank you'

Now, more than ever, it’s so important to recognise the work our public services do and the difference they make to us all. In 2020, in more ways than we realise, they’ve been stepping up and staying strong. We owe them more than just our thanks, so why not join with us at Boundless and discover what you can do to support them?
