CONTENUR sponsored the APSE 2018 Services Awards in Edinburgh on 13 September.

These awards, designed to recognise excellence in local government frontline services across the UK, are open to all local authorities and their public sector partners.

This year, the awards included 21 categories, covering the vast majority of local services, as well as the prestigious Overall Council of the Year in Service Delivery Award. The awards were presented by Julie MacDonald, broadcast journalist and presenter.

Both winners and finalists highlight how councils across the UK are embracing change, innovation and best practice in order to continually offer outstanding services.

APSE Chief Executive Paul O’Brien said, “The winners of these awards are amongst the best at delivering outstanding public frontline services. APSE works continually to encourage public service excellence and we are delighted that all our finalists and winning councils are so highly committed to delivering the best possible services for the benefit of their communities.”
