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.
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.
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.

Blowing the whistle on environmental damage – what workers need to know
The COP26 climate talks, and the actions surrounding the conference, have served as a stark reminder that drastic action must be taken now to prevent climate catastrophe. As António Guterres, Secretary General of the United Nations, warned at the beginning of the COP26, “either we stop it, or it stops us.” At Protect we recognise ... Read more
Disclosures, public interest & the Official Secrets Act
At Protect, we believe that whistleblowing is a bedrock of our democracy and crucial to holding the government accountable, detecting fraud and preventing serious wrongdoing. The Official Secrets Act 1989 (the “OSA”) ensures civil servants keep some key national security information confidential but should not prevent whistleblowing altogether. A workshop on ‘Civil Society, National Security, ... Read more
Regulator annual whistleblowing reports shows huge variation in case number and action taken
