million voices for change - PUBLIC WORKS!



Our public services are the most efficient way to deliver the things we need. You use public services every day and you get enormous value for what you pay. Here’s how...


7am: You make coffee with safe drinking water provided and monitored for safety by Scottish Water. You have a shower and use the toilet that flushes into the public sewerage system safe in the knowledge that it’s not flowing down the street spreading cholera and other diseases.

The electricity and gas that you use may now be provided by the private sector but OFGEM regulates the market and a range of health and safety laws protect you from being electrocuted or blown up.



We'd like to hear how public services help you every day. We'd like to use good stories and the best will be made into a video which will be available online.
