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.
Training & consultancy for organisations
Working with Protect means your organisation is leading the way in good whistleblowing arrangements. Protect offers your staff a real alternative to silence, by giving them the confidence to speak up to stop harm.
Law & Policy
Protect has over 25 years experience of campaigning for better legal protection and better public policy towards whistleblowers (see our case study page for more information on whistleblowing) and the public interest concerns they are raising.
How you can help
We receive no government funding and need your support to reach out to more workers and ensure they are empowered to speak up to protect us all.
