New advice line for charity whistleblowers

Helen Stephenson, Chief Executive of the Charity Commission, has blogged about the regulator's plans to make it easier for charity workers and volunteers to bring concerns to their attention, Charity whistleblowers: how and why we value them

From June 2019, the charity Protect will provide an advice line for charity whistle blowers. Callers to this line will receive confidential advice to help them decide what to do about raising a serious concern about their charity, including whether and how to raise their concerns with the Commission.

Read the Commission's guidance on reporting serious wrongdoing as a worker or volunteer.
