  • Leeds City Council has been awarded the Keep Me Posted campaign’s ‘Best Practice’ Mark of Distinction

 

Leeds CityCouncil serves more than 750,000 residents and has been awarded a Mark of Distinction by the Keep Me Posted campaign for providing a choice for residents to receive their council tax or other financial statements by post.  

 

The council joins a number of UK water, energy and financial services companies who currently back the campaign, including other recent local councils Cornwall, Cheshire East and South Lanarkshire.

Judith Donovan CBE, Chair, of the Keep Me Posted campaign, said: “I’m delighted to award Leeds CityCouncil with the Keep Me Posted campaign’s ‘Best Practice’ Mark of Distinction.

“Our campaign welcomes any organisation which provides its customers with a choice in how they are communicated with.”

Steve Carey, Chief Officer (Welfare Benefits), Leeds City Council, said: “Our digital agenda means we increasingly provide information and services online which many of our resident’s want and which makes their lives easier. However, we know in some cases this isn’t always practical and because we are realistic and flexible, we can provide a choice for them to receive their council tax or other financial statements by post.”

Leeds CityCouncil joins a number of prominent organisations, including high street banks such as the Royal Bank of Scotland and NatWest, as one of the service providers publically recognised by the campaign as providing paper bills and financial statements to its customers.
