Data Matching - National Fraud Initiative 2020/21

High Peak Borough Council are participating in an exercise to promote the proper spending of public money.

We participate in the Cabinet Office's anti-fraud initiative, known as the National Fraud Initiative. For this initiative, we are providing details of Small Business Grant Fund (SBGF), Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Grant Fund (RHLGF), and Local Authority Discretionary Fund (LADF) data so that it can be compared to information provided by other public bodies. This data will primarily be matched to identify possible cases of grant fraud. These exercises, therefore, help promote the best use of public funds.

You do not need to take any action. More information is available on this via our National Fraud Initiative webpage.
