Wessex LMCs is a family of approaching one hundred individuals, who interact daily to deliver first-class representation and support to our constituents. Like most organisations of this size, we have our challenges, and Wessex LMCs would like to be - and be seen to be - a transparent and accountable organisation with a strong values-based culture.
We have underpinned our work with a new Values Charter, which all members of the LMC Family (the office staff, Secretariat and Committee members) will adhere to and be held accountable to through a process known as ‘Securing Our Values’.
The “Our Values” Charter is a set of principles and behaviours that all members of the LMC Family will adhere to, building on what has already been formalised in the constitutions/articles of association, the staff handbook, the Communication Charter and some of the recommendations from the Romney working group.
Everyone should be encouraged and supported to ‘call out’ unacceptable behaviours in the moment and this is preferable, however, individuals are now also able to report an issue confidentially, or anonymously. The LMC wishes to be open about this process – this document sets that out.
