Whistle - Blowing - Policy and Procedures
The Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998 protects workers who “blow the whistle” about wrongdoing. It applies where a worker has a reasonable belief that their disclosure tends to show one or more of the following offences or breaches:
Laleham Church Playgroup strongly supports measures which protect whistleblowers from any form of victimisation. Laleham Church Playgroup has a procedure to ensure that concerns are dealt with effectively and efficiently and will do all that they can to preserve the confidentiality of workers who raise such concerns.
Staff who genuinely believe that people they work with are behaving in a way that seems wrong or have a serious concern about an aspect of the provision will be doing their duty and acting in the public interest by speaking out.
This policy and procedure was agreed by Laleham Church Playgroup at a meeting on...5th September 2018
