We have adopted the Nolan principles of public life to underpin all of our values and work.
Independent and Impartial
We will maintain our independence in our decision making and be transparent, accountable and trusted (to be the voice for local people).
We will be proactive in accounting to all our stakeholders, including authorised representatives (volunteers) and members of HWMK and we will take responsibility for our actions.
We will support all communities and particularly communities and social groups that are hard to reach to enable them to have a voice
A 'Critical Friend'
We will be constructive as well as challenging with service providers and commissioners, ensuring that we provide evidence to support what we say and do.
Effective and Efficient
We will make the best use of our resources, ensuring that we operate efficiently both internally and externally by making the most of partnership opportunities and good working relationships.
Listen and Respond
We will engage with the local population and respond to them.
