Updated Whistleblowing guidance

Does your charity have a whistleblowing policy where staff concerns are picked up?

Did you know that all charity employees are able to report concerns about serious wrong doing directly to the Charity Commission via email. The whistleblower can have some protection if they are treated unfairly if it was reported in line with Public Interest Disclosure.

The Charity Commission has recently published updated guidance on Whistleblowing, to view this please click here.

The Charity Commission also encourages a whistleblowing policy within organisations as this fits within best practice and can assist trustees in complying with their duty to act in the charity's best interests.
