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.

COVID-19 UPDATE

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

Anyone in need of advice outside of those times can reach us at whistle@protect-advice.org.uk and we can make arrangements for call backs.

The Business Support team can be reached on 020 3117 2520 or at business@protect-advice.org.uk

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.
