Whistleblowing is when a worker, person who we support, family member or member of the public reports suspected wrongdoing in relation to the people we support.

Officially this is called ‘making a disclosure in the public interest’. If you have any concerns around the care a person who we support is receiving you can phone our whistleblowing hotline anonymously on 07791 505 930.
