Safeguarding and Whistleblowing

Whistleblowing is when a worker, person who we support, family member or member of the public reports suspected wrongdoing in relation to the people we support.

Officially this is called ‘making a disclosure in the public interest’. If you have any concerns around the care a person who we support is receiving you can phone our whistleblowing hotline anonymously on 07791 505 930 or contact the Local Safeguarding Team for the area where the person lives or the Care Quality Commission on 03000 616161.
