Celebrating our local services champions

The people who make our lives better, from dawn till dusk 

UNISON calls them the UK’s “local service champions”, the people at the frontline of vital council services who take care of so many aspects of our lives – from the routine to the lifesaving.

Sadly, many of these local government members are not given the credit they deserve for their hard work and dedication in providing vital local services, helping vulnerable people and keeping our communities running.

That’s why UNISON has launched its Local Services Champions campaign, to help show the public the difference our members make every day.

Here, we’ve spoken to just some of these unsung heroes, who between them provide a variety of services – some of them perhaps surprising even to their fellow members – around the UK.
