Take the Civility & Respect Pledge!
SLCC, NALC, and OVW believe now is the time to put civility and respect at the top of the agenda and start a culture change for the local council sector.
Signing up to the Pledge is one of the ways a council can demonstrate that it is committed to standing up to poor behaviour, and to demonstrate positive changes.
