Coronation Street - LGA
Practical steps that you and your council can undertake to protect yourself as a person in a public position.
The aim of this Guide is to provide councillors and councils with practical steps they can follow to decrease the likelihood of experiencing harassment, abuse and intimidation and give them some ideas on how to respond should an incident occur. The Guide has been developed based on the most relevant research, and best practice recognised across a range of organisations, as well as the direct experience of councillors.
Debate Not Hate Campaign
Abuse and intimidation has no place in politics and undermines democracy. The LGA has launched a new Debate Not Hate campaign alongside new research looking at the impact of abuse on local democracy. Please consider supporting the campaign by signing up to our statement if you are a councillor or signing up to get regard updates on the campaign and Tweet about reversing the normalisation of abuse of politicians using #DebateNotHate.
