Whistleblowing is the disclosure of information which relates to suspected wrongdoing or dangers at work.
The aims of the First Federation Trust Whistleblowing Policy are:
- To encourage staff to report suspected wrongdoing as soon as possible, in the knowledge that their concerns will be taken seriously and investigated as appropriate, and that their confidentiality will be respected.
- To provide staff with guidance on how to raise concerns.
- To reassure staff that they should be able to raise genuine concerns without fear of reprisals, even if they turn out to be mistaken
