Richard Wallace represented Front Row Group at the launch of the John Smith Centre for Public Service on Wednesday 16 March at Dover House, Whitehall.

Hosted by the University of Glasgow, in partnership with the John Smith Centre, this special reception was an opportunity for their alumni and friends to find out more about their ambitious vision for the Centre and its activity programme, and about opportunities to engage in various ways with the work of the Centre as it develops.

The Centre will sit within the University of Glasgow and work in partnership with other departments to act as a focus for advocacy, debate and insight into public service, with the ambition of attracting more young people to contribute to public life and restoring the reputation of the role of public servants. By bringing together world class researchers the Centre will explore contemporary attitudes to public service, the barriers and motivations to participation in public life and how everyone can effectively contribute to the future landscape of our public sector. Their students will benefit from hands-on learning experiences, which will reinforce Glasgow’s reputation for producing inspiring leaders and create an empowering and attractive force for the promotion and advancement of public service. Public events and community outreach will also seek to impart a better sense of control and involvement in the way that we are governed.
