Confidential reporting

The Council is committed to the highest possible standards of openness, probity and accountability.

In line with that commitment we expect employees and others that we deal with who have serious concerns about any aspect of the Council's work to come forward and voice those concerns. It is recognised that most cases will have to proceed on a confidential basis.
