Lesson 1 – Overview
- It is important to raise concerns if keeping quiet could result in harm.
- Harm includes health, safety and environment, as well as reputational or financial damage.
- You should also raise concerns if you believe the law is being broken.
- You are protected from reprisals and other negative consequences if you raise genuine concerns in the appropriate way.
Lesson 2 – Whistleblowing in action
- You are protected from victimisation or other negative consequences if you follow internal procedures for raising concerns.
- You should document your concerns so that you are clear about what evidence you have.
- You can obtain confidential advice from helplines and charities but you must not talk to the press (if you want to remain protected).
- Your organisation policy should explain which external organisations to report to if you are not happy with the response from the organisation.
Lesson 3 – What would you do?
- Whilst it is difficult to give precise rules about when to report, your internal whistleblowing or raising concerns policy will give you guidance.
- You must follow the reporting process outlined, or have a good reason to go outside of it.
- In most cases, your concerns can be dealt with internally, as someone else in your organisation cares as much as you do.
