Social media information and standards

We welcome anyone with an interest in Gloucestershire life to follow us on social media. You can join the conversation on:

We also own and use other social media profiles which you can find here. We look forward to hearing from you.

Our use of social media

Through social media, we can update you on many aspects of our work. You can also give us feedback on the services you use, tell us your ideas on how we can improve, or let us know when we have done something well.

When you follow us on Twitter or like our Facebook page, we will let you know about:

  • council meetings and decisions
  • elections and democracy
  • emergency information e.g. flood warnings, road gritting, unplanned road closures
  • events
  • news and services
  • public consultations

Regardless of terms such as 'follow' and 'like', we do not endorse any individual or organisation by creating a social media connection with them. We also have no fixed approach in regard to who we connect with, though the following list is a guide:

  • Gloucestershire county and district councillors, or other politicians commenting on matters of interest
  • public, private and voluntary sector partner organisations
  • community organisations and campaigning groups
  • media and journalists
  • any other commentators or opinion-formers that the council may choose to follow.
