We are the Peoples Public Trust and we have one goal - fixing the public services of this once-great nation.
Great Britain has one of the greatest public service infrastructures in the world, but it is not functioning at its best just now - and we are sure almost everyone knows that something is wrong.
We believe that everyone also has some idea as to what that 'something' is. We believe it comes from some public servants serving the needs of big business, their own egos, or their own selfish or immature desires instead of what they are supposed to do - serving the People!
Be they abusing their power or authority, lining their own pockets, or just behaving badly, it is a failing to do as they were each entrusted, and paid, to do: To have the wellbeing and benefit of the People and the community as their highest personal priority:
Safe, healthy, creative and progressive communities. Quality and engaging education for our children. Quality services that are delivered in a respectful, helpful and courteous manner.
Is this not the impression of this nation that we try to present to the world? It surely is what we want, isn't it?
We're certainly paying enough to achieve those goals.
We believe the problem is not the structure of our services, but the conduct of individual public servants. Not a lot of them, as there are thousands and thousands of excellent servers out there, but just a few 'bad apples' are ruining our communities and our very lives with their abuses of authority, decisions which benefit big business first, and their own immature or selfish behaviour.
This represents a breach of the most fundamental trust in our entire society - the trust that those we pay from the public purse to serve should be serving the public and no one else, and that service should reflect value for money and give good quality and excellent customer service.
These very-human qualities are what is disappearing - to be replaced by unjust processes, cash confiscation, abuse of position, rudeness and unhelpfulness. At it's worst - kidnap, unlawful detention, bullying and harassment.
This is where the Peoples Public Trust come in. We are mandated to work to fix the public service. To ally with those who want a safe community, a loving environment for children, healthy and progressive education and quality services for all, and to hold to account those who stand against these goals by their actions.
We get involved to pursue individual public servants and serving organisations for that breach of trust, in whatever form it has taken, from misrepresentation, misuse of public office, corruption and improper process all the way down to plain-and-simple rude, unhelpful or obnoxious behaviour.
We aim to fix the public service one servant at a time until we get what all of us really want - quality services, safe communities, helpful councils with civility, courtesy and good spiritedness from those of us in those roles.
We believe it isn't that hard. The missing qualities from our paid servants and services are all the FREE ones - respect, helpfulness, courtesy, commitment to role, humanity and so on. We work to re-inject these qualities and by doing so, we believe we can restore the quality and integrity of our services, as well as the honour, value and respect for that great role to the community that is 'Public Service.' See 'how we work' to find out the ways we seek to achieve this.
We also need your help as we undertake this mammoth, but achievable, task. See 'get involved' to see what you can do.
Lets not just moan about whats wrong and about 'them doing this or that' - lets take some action while we still can and lets do it properly!
