Whistleblowing policy

Taunton Deane Borough Council is committed to the highest possible standards of openness and accountability. In line with that commitment we expect both employees and members of the public, who have serious concerns about any aspect of the Council's work to come forward and voice their concerns.

Whether you are an employee or a member of the public, you might be the first to realise that there may be something seriously wrong within the Council.

This policy is intended to encourage and enable employees and members of the public to raise concerns within the Council rather than overlooking a problem.

This policy also explains how you can raise a concern without fear of victimisation, subsequent discrimination or disadvantage.
