Publica is a council-owned not for profit company which delivers services for Cotswold, West Oxfordshire, and Forest of Dean District Councils and Cheltenham Borough Council.
Publica additionally provides services to the Cheltenham Trust, Cheltenham Borough Homes and UBICO (an environmental services local authority company).
Each of the councils and clients retain their independence and identity but by working together and sharing resources, seek to maximise mutual benefit, leading to more efficient, effective delivery of local services.
At Publica we put our customers first. We provide excellent service to our local communities, the councils and clients we support and our colleagues. Our aim is to have a reputation for service that is second to none. We’re owned by the councils and not shareholders, so we know our priorities and have strong values.
At Publica we put people and our communities in Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire at the centre of everything we do. Importantly we have the freedom to do things differently. We combine the knowledge, experience and skills of people from across four councils to innovate, modernise and become more flexible in how we deliver services. We know the world we all live and work in has changed and local services need to change too.
