APSE Annual Service Awards 2021

APSE has announced its Service Awards Winners 2021!

APSE are delighted to announce the winners of the APSE Service Awards 2021. 

Speaking about the Awards, Paul O'Brien, APSE Chief Executive, said, "The purpose of last night’s celebration was to recognise the best in public services and to share that best practice with all. We received an overwhelming 320 submissions for the Awards this year, with each one demonstrating a clear commitment to the goals of continuous improvement and the delivery of excellence in public services. On behalf of everyone at APSE I would like to say a massive thank you to all of our finalists – you are a credit to the communities you serve."

The APSE Awards are specific to frontline services provided by UK local authorities. The Awards are agreed by a panel of expert judges. This year, the Awards included 22 categories, covering the vast majority of local services, as well as the prestigious Overall Council of the Year in Service Delivery Award.

The winners were announced at the APSE Annual Charity Awards Dinner, in aid of Parkinson’s UK, on Thursday 9 September 2021 in Birmingham. For more information about the APSE Annual Seminar 2021, click here.
