Changeworks uses social media to engage with interested people, organisations, community groups and businesses. We’re also aware of our responsibilities in ensuring the accuracy and quality of any information we produce.

This policy is an important part of our commitment to ensure that information on our social media accounts is accurate, accessible, and appropriate.

Most social media platforms have their own rules and guidelines which we will follow. We reserve the right to remove any contributions that break the rules or guidelines of the relevant community. We ask that users who interact with Changeworks on social media adhere to the following:

  • Be respectful and topical.
  • Do not swear. This includes the use asterisks etc. to imply swearing. This can offend other users, is unnecessary, and will usually result in your comment being removed.
  • Do not post messages that are unlawful, libellous, harassing, defamatory, abusive, threatening, harmful, obscene, profane, sexually oriented or racially offensive.
  • Do not post content copied from elsewhere, or for which you do not own the copyright.
  • Do not post the same message, or very similar messages, more than once.  This is known as ‘spamming’.
  • Do not publish your, or anyone else’s, personal information, such as contact details.
  • Do not advertise products or services.
  • Do not impersonate someone else.
  • Please take care not to make defamatory statements. In law this means a statement that lowers the reputation of a person or organisation in the eyes of a reasonable person. We will therefore take down any statement that could be deemed to be defamatory.
