Have you read about “The Association for Public Service Excellence (APSE)”? It is “owned by its members and, working on their behalf, maintains and develops a network of local government officers, managers and councillors from local authorities across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales”.
“Working on a not-for-profit basis, APSE is dedicated to promoting excellence in the delivery of frontline services to local communities around the UK. Through the extensive APSE network, more than 300 local authorities and organisations are able to share information and expertise on vital frontline services, ask for advice and innovative solutions, and develop new, viable ways forward in an effort to help one another.
“APSE provides a united national voice for these authorities, as well as showing them the way to move forward and develop strong, sustainable frontline services”.
Does it operate in West Lancashire where we desperately need some public service excellence? If not why not, or is it over promoted and unworthy of the attention it seeks?
