Glyn Ellis Hughes

As a civil servant working in DWP, I'm really enjoying the chance to work with other government departments to share new ideas. I'm now working one day a week as the communications leads for Civil Service Local north west. As a Welshman who's made his home in the north west of England, I hope to help bring you news from our area about the benefits of working together in exciting, creative ways to make things better for us and the towns and cities where we live and work.

Bringing services to Trinity Hospice, Blackpool

The Government Access Project - known as GAP, recently helped 65 patients as well as staff and carers at Trinity Hospice, Blackpool. Our team of cross-government volunteers are now looking forward to returning to Trinity and other local hospices in 2015 to develop their skills further and continue to support our community.

Civil Service Awards – a double celebration

It was a tale of two regions and two successes for Civil Service Local at this year’s Civil Service Awards with both the north west team and Richard Hill in the south west and Wales, deservedly picking up a prestigious award each.
