Celebrating the very best in local government

We are delighted to announce the successful finalists and commended teams whose entries have been selected by our judges in the 16 categories that make up The MJ Local Government Achievement Awards 2018

As ever judges had a difficult task choosing the finalists from a strong selection of entries covering the huge range of responsibilities and services across local government. There were entries covering corporate-wide issues such as transformation, leadership, funding, communications and workforce strategy through to specific service areas like highways, property, public health and street cleansing. Many entries addressed the challenges of adult and children’s services. There were also impressive examples of individual projects and initiatives which had a major impact on groups of residents, changing their lives to the better.

This year we had some new categories covering notably public health, communications, highways management and digital transformation. For the first time we also launched a Rising Star category and judges were highly impressed by the high standard of entries from young staff members.

We wish to thank all those teams for taking the time to enter our awards and congratulate our almost 100 finalists who were chosen by our judges from a strong set of entries. We also thank our sponsors who help make these awards possible.

From the finalists in each of our 16 categories a Winner and in some cases Highly Commended as well will be announced at our gala awards night on June 27 at the Hilton Hotel, Park Lane, London. It will be a great night out but most importantly it will be an opportunity for the sector through the awards to recognise and praise the vital work local government teams continue to undertake every day.

Don't miss out on the chance to thank your incredible team and celebrate their success. For gala table booking information (including the different packages available) click here.
