Achieving for Children

We’ve been shortlisted for two LGC Awards

We have been selected as shortlisted as finalists for two 2018 LGC Awards: in the categories of Best Children’s Services and Best Delivery Model.

The awards, run by Local Government Chronicle, are the biggest and most prestigious awards ceremony for the local government sector.

Nearly 100 organisations have been shortlisted as finalists in the coveted awards, which recognise the best of local government innovation and service delivery.
The high quality of this year’s entries demonstrates the enthusiasm to innovate in an era in which councils’ budgets have been cut. The awards seek to identify and recognise local government’s greatest innovators, whose achievements are often under reported.

LGC editor Nick Golding said: “To be shortlisted for an LGC Award shows a council service is among the country’s most innovative, and doing the most to support the needs of local residents as councils face continuing budget cuts. We should salute the council officers and councillors doing the most to ensure our vital public services thrive in the era of austerity.”

The winners will be announced in a ceremony at London’s Grosvenor House venue on 21 March 2018.
