Whistleblowing - report a suspected malpractice
Whistleblowing (public interest disclosure)
Whistleblowing, also called ‘making a disclosure in the public interest’, is when you report suspected wrongdoing in or to an organisation.
We encourage whistleblowing. We would prefer to know your concerns rather than find out when it’s too late.
Issues you could raise:
- Fraud - someone claiming something that they’re not entitled to, e.g. council tax discounts, council grants, housing
- Health and safety - danger to the health and safety of people we hold responsibility for, e.g. council employees, children or older people in council care
- Environmental damage – damage to council property and buildings
- Criminal activities - bribery, corruption and 'backhanders' involving people associated with or working for the council
- Legal duty - people or companies failing to comply with their legal duty
