Protected Disclosure (Whistleblowing) Policy

The Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998 places a legal responsibility on everyone to ensure matters of serious public concern can be addressed.

The Council is committed to the highest possible standards of openness, probity and accountability and these have been incorporated into the Council's Key Values. In line with that commitment the Council has drawn up this Protected Disclosure Policy to ensure that employees with serious concerns about any aspect of the organisation's performance, management, standards or conduct should be able to voice those concerns.

If you would prefer to discuss any concerns with the Council’s external auditor, please email
