We turn 25 this year – in October – and mark our anniversary with a new look and name, changing from Public Concern at Work, to Protect.
Protect Chief Executive Francesca West, said, “ We aim to protect workers’ rights, organisations’ reputations, and wider society, by encouraging safe and responsible whistleblowing. We believe that whistleblowing ultimately protects customers, beneficiaries, staff and the organisation itself.”
In our 25-year history we have supported more than 40,000 people. The first whistleblowing organisation in the UK, we been helping people raise concerns through our advice line since 1993 and played a key role in campaigning for the whistleblowing law in the UK, the Public Interest Disclosure Act (PIDA).
Independent, and offering free, confidential support for whistleblowers, Protect also supports organisations with best practice whistleblowing arrangements.
Our name change will take effect on 10 September 2018 ahead of our anniversary celebrations throughout October 2018.
