This is often seen as a negative thing to be doing in the work place.
As an organisation we are changing the way the culture views whistle blowers.
Whistle blowing is the action of raising concerns and voicing issues of wrong doing within the work environment.
The wrong doing you disclose must be in the public interest. This means it must affect others, e.g. the general public or those supported by an organisation.
As a whistle blower you are protected by law - you shouldn't be treated unfairly or lose your job because you blow the whistle.
You can raise your concern at any time about an incident that happened in the past, is happening now, or you believe will happen in the near future.
There are organisations out there who can offer advice and support outside of your working environment.

If you are treated unfairly after whistle blowing by your employer it may be useful to contact the above organisations and seek further advice.
Trustworthiness is shown in a persons actions not just their words.
