Advertising on our website

We're currently working to identify and develop opportunities to generate additional income for the council, which we'll use to support the delivery of key services.

Council Advertising Network (CAN)

As part of this, we're working with the Council Advertising Network (CAN) to run an advertising service tailored for public sector organisations.

They enable us to create new revenue streams from advertising placed on our website, and allow us to manage and monitor the adverts without the burden of managing the infrastructure or selling advertising space. 

We'll use any income we make from this type of advertising to subsidise the general upkeep and development of our website.

Advertising campaigns

The advertising campaigns that appear on our website haven't been directly selected by us, but we do have an advertising policy in place that strictly prohibits certain types of advertisement.

By promoting adverts on our website, we're not in any way endorsing or recommending the advertisers' products or services, or any company or organisation. 

Similarly, we don't accept any responsibility for errors, omissions, or for any consequences arising when visiting third party websites from the advertising links on our site.

Tell us what you think

We'll be closely monitoring the advertisements on our site, and how they affect our residents' and customers’ experience. If you want to give your views about advertising on our website, email communications@barnsley.gov.uk.
