APSE announces Service Award Finalists 2016

APSE announces Service Award Finalists 2016
The finalists of the prestigious APSE Service Awards 2016 have now been announced. 

These awards are unique in that they are designed to recognise frontline services that are delivered to local communities, by local councils. This year’s awards span 21 categories and cover the vast majority of local government frontline service areas.

All of the finalists were required to present best practice case studies in their respective categories, which showed them all to be frontrunners in implementing innovative ideas that support continuous improvement and adaptation in local services.

Paul O’Brien, APSE Chief Executive, was delighted to see such a high calibre of entries this year. He said, “Despite the issues local government faces at this present moment, it is wonderful to see such exciting projects being carried out by so many dedicated people. These finalists are a credit to their councils and their communities.”

The winners of each category will be announced in Derry/Londonderry at the APSE Annual Service Awards Charity Dinner on Thursday 8th September.
