If you have a concern about a wrongdoing within the council which is in the public interest, you can report this online.
Before you report it
The following examples can be reported as whistleblowing concerns:
- a criminal offence, for example fraud
- someone’s health and safety is in danger
- risk or actual damage to the environment
- a miscarriage of justice
- the council is breaking the law, for example does not have the right insurance
- you believe someone is covering up wrongdoing
Concerns that do not count as whistleblowing are things such as personal grievances. For example, bullying, harassment and discrimination are not covered by whistleblowing law, unless your particular case is in the public interest.
