Anti-Fraud and Corruption policy

​​The Anti-Fraud and Corruption Policy recognises that the council, as a large organisation, is at risk of loss due to fraud and corruption from within the council and outside it. In meeting our responsibilities relating to fraud and corruption, whether attempted internally or externally, we're committed to an effective anti-fraud and corruption policy designed to:

  • Encourage prevention.
  • Promote detection.
  • Ensure effective investigation where suspected fraud or corruption has occurred.
  • Prosecute offenders where appropriate.

There's an expectation and requirement that all members, employees, consultants, contractors, and service users be fair and honest, and if able to do so, provide help, information and support to assist the investigation of fraud and corruption. 

Advice on how members of the public may raise suspicions about fraud and corruption is contained in Appendix 1 of the strategy​.
