It is vitally important that all our employees and stakeholders feel safe to raise concerns about unacceptable practice and misconduct. We have a dedicated whistleblowing policy to help them to do so, and are committed to providing support to those raising concerns.
Our whistleblowing policy also relates to safeguarding concerns. Safeguarding is made up of the policies, procedures and actions that we take to protect everyone who comes into contact with the organisation from all forms harm including sexual exploitation, abuse, harassment and discrimination.
If you discover information which you believe to show malpractice or wrongdoing in the EDT, please disclose it via the confidential email firstname.lastname@example.org.
You are encouraged to put your name to your concern wherever possible. Anonymous concerns are less effective but will still be considered, taking into account factors such as seriousness, credibility and the likelihood of confirming the allegation from other attributable sources.
Disclosures will by default be handled in confidence. If it becomes necessary to reveal your identity, you will be consulted first. Where an allegation is particularly serious, it may be necessary to take protective action and/or refer the matter to the police.
