Openness and Transparency

One of the areas in which we want to develop and improve in is our level of openness and transparency. We want to ensure that that we are transparent with all our customers in the way we work.

This is why we will openly publish key documents and policies allowing you to scrutinise the way in which we work and to help us improve the ways in which we do things.
