The Civility and Respect Project releases a new video to encourage councils to take the pledge


The Civility and Respect Project has released a new video to encourage local (parish and town) councils to sign up for its pledge.

The video features sector-leading representatives explaining the civility and respect pledge and encouraging local councils to sign up to help tackle poor behaviour and join the culture change for the local council sector. The video can be used as part of a council meeting when considering signing up for the pledge and to aid further discussions.

The National Association of Local Councils (NALC), One Voice Wales (OVW), and the Society of Local Council Clerks (SLCC) believe it's time to put civility and respect at the top of the agenda and start a culture change in the local council sector.

By signing the pledge, your council will play a part in improving standards across the sector. Together we can make the change happen.

Throughout the sector, there are growing concerns about the impact of bullying, harassment, and intimidation on local councils, councillors, clerks and council staff and the effectiveness of local councils. NALC, OVW, SLCC and county associations have responded by setting up a Civility and Respect Working Group to oversee the Civility and Respect Project.
