UPDATE: Problems contacting us by email

We are currently not able to receive emails. Our IT provider has been subject to a cyber attack. From the checks they have carried out so far, they do not believe our systems have been affected, however as a precautionary measure we have blocked all external emails from reaching our servers, until they can assure us that this is the case.

Emails from us are not affected by the block that is in place, so you should still receive contact from us in this way, although it may take slightly longer than normal. 

We will let you know when these issues are resolved.

If you need us urgently, please call us.


Tackling fraud is an integral part of ensuring that tax-payers money is used to protect resources for front line services.

The cost of fraud to the public sector is estimated at £40.4 billion a year. This is money that can be better used to support the delivery of front line services and make savings for local tax payers.

A culture of transparency should strengthen counter-fraud controls. The Code makes it clear that fraud can thrive where decisions are not open to scrutiny and details of spending, contracts and service provision are hidden from view. Greater transparency and the provisions in this Code, can help combat fraud.

The total GCC Fraud and Irregularity activity can be found within the Annual Internal Audit Activity Progress Reports published in June.
