Announcing the finalists of the APSE Service Awards 2022

Celebrating excellence in local public services!

Speaking about the Awards, Paul O'Brien, APSE Chief Executive, said, "The APSE Service Awards are uniquely placed to recognise the enormous effort and dedication of our vital frontline services. We received an overwhelming number of submissions for the Awards this year, with each one demonstrating a clear commitment to the goals of continuous improvement and the delivery of excellence in public services. On behalf of everyone at APSE I would like to say a massive thank you to all of our finalists – you are a credit to the communities you serve."

The APSE Awards are specific to frontline services provided by UK local authorities. The awards are agreed by a panel of expert judges. This year, the Awards included 22 categories, covering the vast majority of local services. The shortlist for the prestigious Overall Council of the Year in Service Delivery Award is still under deliberation and will be announced at a later date.

The winners will be announced at the APSE Annual Charity Awards Dinner, in aid of Parkinson’s UK, on Thursday 15 September 2022 at the brand-new state-of the-art Swansea Arena. The ceremony will take place at the rise of the APSE Annual Seminar, this year set against the stunning Swansea Bay and Gower Peninsula.
