The public has the right to expect the highest standard of conduct from all council staff.

Guidance is available for staff to help ensure that their conduct meets public expectation around the receipt of gifts and hospitality.

Your default position should be to not accept any gifts (including cash or vouchers), hospitality, sponsorship or bequests unless under very specific circumstances. If in doubt the offer should be declined.

The council’s Gifts and Hospitality Policy can be found on PolicyHub - this sets out the proper approach to such offers in more detail. In the event of any offer being made you should discuss the matter with your Director.

The links below enable you to view public gifts register or add a gift to the register using our staff system.
