The hour-long programme keenly examines the role that local authorities play in building sustainable communities. Despite being at the heart of communities across the country, the way in which local authorities’ services are funded and delivered is now in constant flux. To support councils, APSE have been searching for new initiatives that are helping councils to do more with less. In this search, promoting innovation and excellence across the UK has been key.
Drawing upon ITN’s 60-year heritage and expertise in storytelling, Promoting Excellence aims to create a greater understanding of the processes, problems and solutions within a large number of frontline services. The objective of this prgramme is to heighten awareness among policy makers, politicians and the wider sector about the forward thinking initiatives across the UK, which help shape the future of local government and the communities it serves.
