Published on Thursday, 9th November 2017

The Ediblelinks Partnership a collaboration between the Healthy Living Network, NWBC and Ocado has been selected as a shortlisted finalist for 2 categories in the LGC Awards.

EdiblelinksThe Ediblelinks Partnership, a collaboration between the Healthy Living Network,  North Warwickshire Borough Council and Ocado that supplies food and other non food support to a wide range of individuals, not for profit groups and schools  across the North of Warwickshire and beyond has been selected as a shortlisted finalist in 2 categories in the 2018 LGC Awards.  The categories are Best Public/Private Partnership and Best Innovation.

The awards, run by Local Government Chronicle, are the biggest and most prestigious awards ceremony for the local government sector. The winners will be announced in a ceremony at London’s Grosvenor House venue on 21 March 2018.

Nearly 100 organisations have been shortlisted as finalists in the coveted awards from over a thousand entries  which recognise the best of local government innovation and service delivery.

The high quality of this year’s entries demonstrates local government’s 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.

With budgets at the forefront of priorities, it is even more important this year to shine a spotlight on the achievements of those councils whose pioneering best practice can inspire other councils to improve services.

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.”

Winners will be announced on 21 March 2018 at Grosvenor House on London’s Park Lane which will be attended by 1,100 people from local government and its partner organisations.
