If you know of wrongdoing within the council and feel it is in the public interest to report it, you can do this online.
Before you report it
The following are good examples of valid whistleblowing concerns:
- someone has committed a criminal offence, for example, fraud
- someone’s health and safety is in danger
- there has been damage, or there is risk of damage, to the environment
- there has been a miscarriage of justice
- the council is breaking the law, for example, it has not taken out the right insurance
- you believe someone is covering up wrongdoing
Personal grievances do not count as valid whistleblowing concerns. For example, bullying, harassment and discrimination are not covered by whistleblowing law, unless your particular case is in the public interest.
