Report council employee and contractor corruption and fraud

We are committed to building trust with our residents and we take fraud and corruption within the council very seriously.  

Corruption and fraud can occur in many areas of our business including: 

  • an officer or councillor abusing their position for gain
  • contractor providing cash, goods, or services in kind to a councillor or officer in return for the award of a contract 
  • making a false overtime claim 
  • misuse of a purchase card. 

Corruption stops us getting value for money and erodes the public's confidence in us.
