About our website
Our website provides a local community news service, where we may report on the activities of third party organisations. Most of the content is produced by volunteers, and it is overseen and moderated by volunteers too.
We encourage all the people who comment or contribute to our website to try to use fair, legal and honest language. Wherever possible, we urge our contributors to link out to the source of their information and if we post something critical of a third party organisation or person, we will always try to provide them with an opportunity to respond to any criticism.
We do not tolerate hate speech, harassment or discriminatory content of any form on this website.
However, you should be aware that some of the content displayed on our website is aggregated from publicly available material on the internet automatically.
Whilst we have less control over this material, if you see something that you believe is inappropriate or offensive, please contact us and we will take action as soon as we can to respond to your concerns.
About our use of social media
Greener Leith has a number of accounts on popular social media platforms. Content on these platforms can either be automatically posted from our website, or another website, or it may be posted there manually by one of our volunteers.
We aim to apply the same standards to the content in our social media accounts as we do for our main website.
These accounts are currently managed by our volunteer, Alastair Tibbitt, so when you get a human response through one of our social media accounts – it is probably him responding.
We try to treat everyone we deal with respectfully and fairly. However, we do have an established complaints procedure, should you wish to make a formal complaint about any aspect of our work.
You can make a formal complaint to us using the contact form on our website. Please include as much detail in the complaint as possible, as this will help us to resolve it effectively.
You can find out more about the process we will use to deal with it by clicking here.
