Whistleblowing is barely out of the news. We cannot turn on the TV without a headline or plot that relies on whistleblowers and how badly they are treated. Think about our police, NHS, armed forces, media, banks, corporations - the list goes on...
Whistleblowing is good for society and good for business. Whistleblowers are the most effective first line of defence against crime, corruption and cover up.
Whistleblowing Awareness Week (WBAW) is an opportunity for MPs to understand how proposed legislation is key to driving a culture where speaking up is valued, and where people who try to silence whistleblowers or suppress evidence of wrongdoing face the full force of the law. WBAW will dispel the stigma and suspicion that overshadow whistleblowers. It will also set out how the Whistleblowing Bill developed by WhistleblowersUK for the APPG for Whistleblowing will transform the way that whistleblowers and whistleblowing are treated.
