What is a whistleblower?
A whistleblower is someone who exposes fraud, corruption, misconduct, dishonesty or illegal activity within an organisation.
If something is not right, we want to know
All organisations are at risk of malpractice and it can damage them financially and hurt their reputation.
If you are worried about the implications of whistleblowing then you can report what you have witnessed anonymously. However, to fully investigate allegations of fraud and corruption it may be necessary for us to undertake an investigation, which may not be possible without your co-operation.
Please see our Whistleblowing Policy in the Supporting documents box on the right of this page.

Tenancy Fraud includes sub-letting, taking over someone’s tenancy when you’re not entitled to and lying in order to rent a social housing property. It’s a criminal offence, with the consequences including eviction, and a possible fine of up to £5,000 or imprisonment.
Living in a Greenfields property when you’ve got no right to deprives a family of a home they need. That’s why we investigate any reports we receive that residents are living in a home they are not entitled to live in.
The whistleblowing hotlines are also available to report suspected cases of Tenancy Fraud. You can report cases of Tenancy Fraud confidentially to us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 01376 535417 and leaving a voicemail message.
