Website of the Home Office Retired and Reunited Staff Association (HORSA)
HORSA is the only organisation specifically representing all previous HO staff.
Membership is open to former members of the Home Office, HO agencies and its public bodies. Members may be retired or be working elsewhere, inside or outside central government.
The Home Office itself does not keep in contact with previous staff. Now that pension payments are outsourced, there is no direct link to Home Office’s personnel / human resources department. HORSA provides a link, having at least one meeting a year with the Department.
HORSA is financially independent of the Home Office and receives no funding from it. It is sustained by the proceeds of its own fund raising, particularly from the 500 Club lottery which holds a draw giving out prizes at the AGM and Autumn Gathering.
