Scottish Public Service Awards 2020

Building on the success of the Scottish Public Service Awards since their launch in 2014, we are delighted to announce details of this year’s Awards for 2020. The Scottish Public Service Awards celebrate the daily contribution made to Scotland’s civic society from within the civil service, Scottish Government, Scottish Parliament, local government, health and social care sector, broader public sector and their partners within the Third Sector.

And while every year we are in awe of the work of our public servants,  there is no doubt that 2020 has been like no other year for those working tirelessly to deliver public services. The response to the unprecedented demands arising from the COVID-19 pandemic has been extraordinary and this year, the Scottish Public Service Awards will no doubt acknowledge those super human efforts that have seen communities coming together to help each other in a spirit of solidarity, cooperation and kindness.

The awards, once again supported by the Scottish Government and Scottish Parliament, will recognise the rich and unique diversity of public life in Scotland and the vital relationships that cut across departmental, geographic and institutional boundaries. As media partners and event organiser, Holyrood magazine is delighted to play a part in showcasing some of the innovative and thought-provoking work being done the length and breadth of Scotland.
