Announcing the APSE Service Awards Finalists 2019!

APSE has announced its Service Awards Finalists 2019! These awards recognise the very best in local government frontline services  across the UK and following a rigorous round of judging the finalist councils have now been announced.

Speaking about the awards APSE Chief Executive Paul O’Brien said “Local councils do great work but too often they are the unsung heroes of public services. These awards are about celebrating the hard work and achievements of frontline services, and the local government workforce delivering them. These services and local initiatives make a real difference to local places and local people. Congratulations to all the finalists”.

The winners will be announced at APSE Annual Charity Awards Dinner, in aid of Parkinson’s UK on Thursday 12 September 2019 in Newcastle. For more information about the APSE Annual Seminar 2019, click here.
