Very interested to read about The Seven Principles of Public Life (also known as the Nolan Principles).
The Seven Principles of Public Life outline the ethical standards those working in the public sector are expected to adhere to. They were first set out by Lord Nolan in 1995 in the first report of the Committee on Standards in Public Life and they are included in a range of codes of conduct across public life.
Have a read and then:
- Replace “holders of public office” with “Community Advocates” (or use another second more preferable word, such as Builders, Managers, Leaders, Executives, Engineers, Designers etc)
- Replace “public” with “community”.
Try it yourself and see what you think. It makes for an interesting read and reflection.
And I reckon all seven make for an excellent set of principles for any community professional:
What do you think?
