These public service champions are there when we all need them, They change our lives by making it possible for lives to be saved; children to be educated; older people to be cared for at home; our communities to be safer and young people to be given vital life-chances.
And we’re asking people to show their appreciation by thanking their public service champions at publicservicechampions.org
It’s impossible to imagine life without our public services.
But times are hard and public services are under increasing pressure. Our public service champions are being expected to do more with less and for less. But they keep doing it because they care. They care about patients, children, our neighbourhoods and our communities.
UNISON is speaking up for public services through our powerful new Public Service Champions campaign. We will tell the stories of those whose lives are changed because of the dedicated public service professionals behind the scenes. And remind people of the value of our public services, the unsung heroes who are part of the team that provides them, and the risks that they face.
So, look out for our advertisements in papers, on billboards, on the radio, at stations, on tube trains and on Facebook. And if a public service worker has helped you or your family, why not say thanks. Share the campaign, tell your family and friends about it and get them to say thanks too!
