Protect aims to make whistleblowing work for individuals, organisations and society.
Every year, we support around 3,000 whistleblowers who call our Advice Line. In addition, we work with organisations on improving their speak up arrangements and campaign for better legal protection of whistleblowers.
Our Advice Line is open, but on a slightly revised timetable:
Mon, Tue, Thurs: 9:30am – 1pm, 2pm – 5:30pm
Wed, Fri: 9:30am – 1pm
The Business Support team can be reached on 020 3117 2520 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
What we do
Confidential advice for individuals
If you’ve seen, heard or suspect wrongdoing in your workplace, or know of a serious risk or accident ‘waiting to happen’- we can help.
