Fraud

The Code requires that local authorities must publish the following information about their counter fraud work:

  • Number of occasions they use powers under the Prevention of Social Housing Fraud (Power to Require Information) (England) Regulations 2014, or similar powers
  • Total number (absolute and full time equivalent) of employees undertaking investigations and prosecutions of fraud
  • Total number (absolute and full time equivalent) of professionally accredited counter fraud specialists
  • Total amount spent by the authority on the investigation and prosecution of fraud
  • Total number of fraud cases investigated.

Wivelsfield Parish Council has no staff members undertaking fraud investigation work and therefore has no information to publish.
