Reporting fraud, bribery and corruption

How to report your concerns about fraud, bribery or corruption and what you can report to us.

We will not tolerate fraud, bribery and corruption against the council. All reports will be investigated.

If you think someone may be misusing a council service, let us know. We will investigate all reports we receive.

Fraud can be:

  • giving false information or documents
  • failing to disclose information
  • not reporting changes in circumstances when there is legal requirement to do so
  • abuse of position

    How to report fraud

    It helps if you share your name and contact details. We can then contact you if we need more information.

    You do not have to give your personal details.

    Any information you do give will be kept private and confidential.

    Online

    You can report any concerns or suspicions of fraud either against the council or within council by using our online form.
