Civility & Respect Final Newsltter

The civility and respect project is progressing well – the project board approved an initial programme of support for councils, councillors and officers and details of this programme will be delivered over the next few months. The programme includes a bespoke range of training designed to raise awareness, support those suffering from any form of bullying, harassment, or intimidation, and to help the sector develop the necessary skills to head off unwanted behaviour before it becomes an issue. Details and dates of the first range of training are included in the newsletter, and we are inviting everyone to take advantage of the offer of a 50% reduction in all Civility and Respect Training costs until the end of this year. More dates for the training will be added depending on demand.

For further updates and information, please visit the civility and respect pages of NALC's website:

The Voice of the Councillor

The Councillor Commission – organised by the local government magazine TheMJ and De Montfort University Leicester and supported by NALC – publish its final report 'The Voice of The Councillor'. When the Commission was launched we pressed for our sector and our 10,000 councillors not to be overlooked, securing representation on the Commission and a dedicated stream of work to ensure the voice of parish and town councillors was heard. The 124 page report (which is in plain language and easy to read!) includes a dedicated chapter on parish and town councillors and four specific recommendations out of the twenty in total.
