About the book

In the UK's current climate of budget cuts and policy changes, local government officials need to be aware of best practice in both broadcasting their services and responding to crises in their communities. Meanwhile, changes in the media - from the rise of social communications through to web access for older consumers - present new challenges for local councils about how to best convey their key messages and protect their "brand".

Full of expert advice, tools and case studies, PR and Communication in Local Government and Public Services is a practical reference guide to delivering professional public relations for both communications and the delivery of local services. It offers a detailed analysis of the issues that are unique to this challenging and fast-moving environment, whilst reinforcing the importance of effective and meaningful communication to both local democracy and the planning and delivery of quality services.

CIPR members and partners/affiliates have written a number of books that are essential reading for those in the PR profession. On the 20th of July 2012 Share This was released, a practical handbook to the biggest changes taking place in the media and its professions by the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) Social Media Panel.
Share This Too, the follow-up to the best-selling Share This - will be released in August 2013.
