Updates from the Civility and Respect Project Team

The August edition of the Civility and Respect newsletter is out now - <PDF link>.  It includes the Civility and Respect pledge, a new Dignity at Work policy to replace the Bullying and Harassment policy, and an overview of the Civility Training programme.

We are delighted to announce the launch of ‘The Civility and Respect Pledge’, it’s easy to sign up to and is designed to help define the right behaviours within your council, to prevent bullying and to support councils demonstrating high standards of conduct. We are inviting all councils to please take the pledge.

The pledge is supported by a Dignity at Work policy to written to replace a previous Bullying and Harassment policy, approved for use by both NALC and SLCC

Please also take a look at the bespoke training programme with content designed to address the key issues you told us about, specifically designed to support you, enhance your skills and confidence to handle incivility, disrespect, and poor behaviour. 

Visit the NALC and SLCC websites to find out more information on the project resources, details of how your council can sign up to the Pledge and how you can book onto the bespoke training.

Look out for the regular project updates in our NALC and SLCC news bulletins and on social media.
