Anti bullying statement

Guarlford Parish Council treat everyone with courtesy and respect and ask for the same in return. 

We ask that you treat your councillors and council staff courteously without violence, abuse or harassment. Councillors and council staff have the right to carry out their duties without fear of attack or abuse.

Any behaviour whether that be verbal, physical or in writing, which causes Councillors or council staff to feel uncomfortable, embarrassed, or threatened, is totally unacceptable.

This zero-tolerance policy includes abuse, aggression or threats made in person, over the telephone or in written communication, including on social media.

The council considers threatening behaviour to be: attempted or actual aggressive or physical actions made towards any councillor or member of staff.

This policy applies throughout all council meetings but it also applies to any Councillor or council staff away from council meetings.

Model Scheme

The Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) is the UK's independent authority set up to promote access to official information and to protect personal information.

The government is now requiring that authorities, including Parish Councils, should produce a guide to the specific information that they hold and how relevant information will be made available to the general public.

 

Requirements are outlined in an ICO Model Scheme.
