Our Values

Daventry District Council's organisational values aim to support service improvement in not only what we deliver but also how we deliver our services. The values were drawn down from performance workshops with senior managers and consulting all staff through team briefs.

A key principle is that the values are both aspirational - reflecting the change we want to make in the way we work, and recognising our existing strengths. Our values outline what we expect from all our employees about their work and what they should be able to expect from their colleagues.
