APSE performance networks awards: The winners and finalists of 2013

APSE has announced its winners and finalists for its performance networks service 2013 at a charity dinner hosted by Coronation Street star Catherine Tyldesley in Blackpool on Thursday 5th December 2013.

Opening the awards APSE National Chair Leon Unczur said 'Local councils have led the way on delivering first class local public services. Using performance information has been a vital tool in that success.'

APSE performance networks is the UK''s largest voluntary data benchmarking service for local authorities sharing information on cost, quality and customer satisfaction across local council frontline services. The data is independently validated and used by councils across the UK to drive forward improvements in local public services. The awards not only recognise the 'best performers' but the 'most improved performers' showing the commitment of local councils to continuous improvement in local public services.

The 2013 winners and most improved performers, for each service category are:
