Whistleblowing is the act of reporting concerns about malpractice, wrongdoing, fraud or risk that affects others. With this in mind it could well be a concern which could have a negative effect on service users, the public, other staff, or the organisation. Such issues have the potential to compromise the confidence of the service and jeopardise service user safety. Raising a whistleblowing concern can be done by anyone.

Whistleblowing can relate to danger, illegal and unethical affecting others (e.g. service users, members of the public, or their employer).

Personal grievances (e.g. bullying, harassment, discrimination) are not covered by Whistleblowing unless your particular case is in the public interest. These would generally be covered by the internal grievance or complaints procedure.

If you wish to discuss your concerns with a member of staff please call on 01494 923318 and ask to speak to the Operations Director or our Managing Director. You can also email admin@innovativestart.co.uk.
