Whistleblowing

Whistleblowing is a procedure which enables anyone, whether an employee or not, to express any concerns they have about illegal or illegitimate practices involving the council.

You can raise your concerns without fear of victimisation, discrimination or disadvantage.

Make a complaint

How will my whistleblowing complaint be dealt with

All complaints are confidential and will be treated sensitively. We will channel complaints to the most appropriate officer and will keep you informed of who is dealing with the complaint and how.

You will not be given any copies of investigative reports or audits, but we may advise you informally of the conclusions of the investigation.

Not all complaints will warrant a full investigation as it may be that the matter can be resolved informally because the information has been misinterpreted.
