As part of a money saving exercise, in line with the rest of Government, DCMS has been offering, in cyclical phases, the opportunity for civil servants to take voluntary redundancy. The Department does not hold central records for our bodies. Figures for the Government Equalities Office, which joined DCMS in September 2012, are held by the Home office, its previous parent Department.
