Preventing Whistleblower Victimisation Guide


How we can help your organisation

Established in 1993, we are a leading whistleblowing authority in the UK.

The insight gained from our day-to-day Advice Line work is invaluable, giving us a window into difficulties that can arise from whistleblowing. This in-depth knowledge and experience influences our work supporting and advising business clients and shapes our best practice training.

We support  hundreds of organisations across all sectors with our expertise through membership packages, training and consultancy. Nearly 300 organisations are currently benefiting from our membership packages. Many others opt for our bespoke options.

A few years ago we developed our unique Whistleblowing Benchmark to help organisations reach best practice when it comes to whistleblowing standards. Over 100 diverse organisations from public, private and not-for-profit sectors have now assessed their whistleblowing culture using the Benchmark.

No matter what sector your organisation operates in, we can complement your existing Speak Up arrangements or help you set up a whistleblowing support system from scratch.

Why effective whistleblowing culture is important

Many organisations realise the value of a strong whistleblowing culture and the benefits it serves as ‘an early warning’ risk management tool and that it can help prevent damage to lives and livelihoods.

Staff are the eyes and ears of any organisation and often the first to identify malpractice. Our Advice Line cases as well as our research demonstrates how important it is to set up whistleblowing procedures that go beyond just being a tick box exercise. High organisational ethical standards play an increasingly important role for employees old and new, with a positive Speak Up culture being an integral part of those standards.

Our client testimonials


“…The staff at Protect have always been professional and helpful. The support provided through the development and delivery of training was exemplary, both in personal attendance here in Scotland for courses for selected personnel on two occasions, and in the development of our Intranet based ‘Moodle’ Package, which is a mandatory training package for all officers and staff. This, coupled with the provision of the ongoing Advice Line and a Whistleblowing Benchmark review of our new processes has ensured that Police Scotland is best placed to facilitate and support anyone who wishes to report wrongdoing within our organisation.”
