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.

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.

    Press statement – Johnny Mercer MP & whistleblower anonymity

    The Veterans’ Affairs Minister Johnny Mercer has confirmed he is challenging an order to name the source of his claims about alleged war crimes by British special forces in Afghanistan. He could face jail or a fine. At Protect we believe it is paramount that the identity of these whistleblowers are protected.

    Press statement – Sexism in the City

    The findings of the Sexism in the City report come as no surprise. We hear everyday from whistleblowers reporting sexual and non-financial misconduct in the workplace whose employers are failing to address their concerns.

    Whistleblowing charity, Protect, becomes accredited CPD provider. 

    The whistleblowing charity Protect has been recognised as an accredited CPD (Continued Professional Development) provider for four of its instructor led training courses. With this quality of stamp of approval delegates to Protect’s training courses can attend training confident that they can develop and demonstrate their professional development enhancing their understanding and knowledge to help them make better decisions when receiving whistleblowing concerns.

    We believe whistleblowers deserve better

    We’re campaigning for a new Whistleblowing Bill so we all can speak up in confidence when we witness wrongdoing.

    What will the impact of the Infected Blood Inquiry’s NHS Whistleblowing Reforms

    Josie decided to go to the media after a junior civil servant, Raphael Marshall, reached out to the Foreign Affairs Select Committee with evidence of Foreign Office failings. Feeling “humbled” that a junior colleague had been brave enough to speak out, Josie gave an anonymous interview and leaked emails to the BBC to corroborate what he had said. Like so many other whistleblowers, she paid a heavy price for speaking out

    Can civil servants ever blow the whistle to the press?

    Open and transparent: Protect welcomes new enforcement rules from the FCA

    Recently, the Chancellor made it known that he was not happy with the Financial Conduct Authority ‘s new proposals. Under the proposals, the regulator would publicly announce when they open an investigation into a firm – if they decided it was in the public interest to do so. They already have powers to do so, but only in exceptional circumstances.
