Civility and Respect, in its simplest form, is about how we treat each other
Poor behaviour is prevalent in all areas of life, but in work, it can have a detrimental impact on staff wellbeing and public service. Good governance is fundamental to ensuring an effective and well-functioning democracy at all levels.
To encourage the positive behaviour, a ‘Civility and Respect Project’ has been founded by the Civility and Respect Working Group and is supported by representatives from across the sector.
With this vision, a compassionate and inclusive culture should become, if not already there, the very heart of each Council.
West Moors Council “agrees that the council will treat Councillors, clerks, employees, members of the public, and representatives of partner organisations and volunteers with civility and respect in their roles”.
