Advice Line Emergency Fund


We need your help

More whistleblowers than ever are calling our Advice Line during the Covid-19 pandemic. Our lines are incredibly busy at the moment – our small team of legal advisers are dealing with an unprecedented increase in calls in comparison to the same time last year.

We largely fund our Advice Line through the consultancy and training work we do to improve organisations’ whistleblowing arrangements. Our income, like many charities, is being affected by Covid-19 and we need your help.

We want to ensure that we are able to offer free, confidential advice to all of those who need it, to speak up in the workplace.

If you can, please support us by donating to our Advice Line Emergency Fund. Together, let’s make sure we can continue supporting every whistleblower who comes to us for advice.

What our callers say

“Your support, advice, and contributions have been brilliant, and I cannot thank you enough for the time you have spent listening to me and guiding me through some difficult choices.”

Advice Line caller

“When you are going through what is a living hell, it’s hard to see the positives. What you do, I really welcome it. Thank you so much, you are the only place offering no bias and understanding fully the importance of confidentiality.”

Advice Line caller

“I feel a lot less scared going to work now and less fearful of spreading the virus to my elderly parents and vulnerable patients in the clinics we look after. Many thanks for totally getting this and all your excellent advice”.

Our impact

At Protect, we believe whistleblowing is a good thing – it protects the public interest, helps employers identify and manage risk, and holds organisations to account. We want more people to speak up, to stop harm.
