Churchill to Provide Cleaning and Janitorial Services to the Scottish Police Authority
13 July 2020 | Updated 14 July 2020

Churchill Group has secured a multi-site contract with the Scottish Police Authority (SPA), beginning this month.

They will provide cleaning and janitorial services on an initial three-year deal, with an option for a further two years.

Churchill Group is one of the largest independently-owned soft service providers in the UK. Their other clients include Meadowhall Shopping Centre, Network Rail, JLL, and the Royal Veterinary College.

Earlier this year, Churchill Group also confirmed they had received investment from ESO Capital Partners UK LLP. 


“It’s been a superb team effort and one that puts Churchill firmly on the map in Scotland. We hope this will be the start of a long and successful relationship.”

–Louisa Clarke

Operations Director, Churchill


Mobilising a Contract in “Testing Circumstances”


The SPA was created in 2012 and its main functions include maintaining the police service and supporting the continuous improvement of policing in Scotland. The contract covers 13 local authorities across Scotland and 90 sites, including headquarters, offices, call centres and primary/secondary suites.

Churchill was awarded the contract following a rigorous procurement process. SPA extended a huge thanks to all who have procured and mobilised the contract during very testing circumstances.

Louisa Clarke, Operations Director for Churchill, commented: “Winning a contract of this scale is testament to the whole Churchill Scotland team who have mobilised in testing circumstances. 

“It’s been a superb team effort and one that puts Churchill firmly on the map in Scotland. We hope this will be the start of a long and successful relationship.”

Phil Matis, Regional Director for Churchill, added: “Our new partnership with SPA is a defining moment, and a fantastic opportunity, strengthening our position within Scotland. 

“This has come at an exciting time, after previous growth and the opening of our new regional office just outside of Glasgow, acting as the central hub for our operations teams. We are very much looking forward to what the future holds.”
