Information on how to report your concerns about fraud and corruption.
As with other large organisations, the size and nature of the council’s services puts it at risk to loss due to fraud and corruption both from within the council and outside it.
We are committed to making sure that the opportunity for fraud and corruption is reduced to the lowest possible risk. Where there is the possibility of fraud, corruption and other related problems, we will deal with it in a firm, consistent and controlled manner.
A special hotline has been set up for people to report suspected fraud. Trained staff will answer your calls during office hours. Outside these hours you can leave a recorded message. You do not have to give your name.
Contact us if you see or hear of anyone who is:
- Getting money from the council that they are not entitled to – this could be payments for contracts, supplies, grants, benefits or salaries
- Stealing or misusing council stores, equipment, vehicles or buildings
