We are pleased to announce the shortlist for the 2022 LGC Awards. Congratulations to all of our finalists and a big thank you to everyone that took the time and effort to enter. Entrants demonstrated outstanding practice as well as cutting-edge innovations and the judges were very impressed with the extremely high standard. After what has been an extremely difficult couple of years, to receive a record number of entries from a record number of organisations is amazing.

 The shortlisted organisations will now complete presentations and interviews to a specific judging panel made up of senior and influential figures within local government.

 LGC editor Nick Golding said: “Those recognised by being shortlisted for the LGC Awards 2022 have worked tirelessly and innovatively to find new ways of supporting their communities through difficult times. “All too often the work of local public servants is underappreciated. However, the LGC Awards offer a unique opportunity to celebrate their achievements – and the current period of pandemic recovery, uncertain financial conditions and the cost-of-living crisis means the value of skilled and hard-working council staff has never been higher.”
