Join UNISON activists across the country on Thursday 6 December for SOS Day! This year we will focus on roles that help to protect our communities, like trading standards, environmental health, social services and many other local heroes working behind the scenes and on the front line to keep us all safe. .

Local government funding cuts mean less funding is spent on prevention and enforcement. Staff shortages, long hours and high levels of stress take their toll and risk putting people and communities at risk.
