My thanks to Fighting Monsters AMHP for bringing to my attention a Report from Public Concern at Work about whistleblowing in the care sector.
The title of the report – Speaking up for vulnerable adults: What the whistleblowers say – speaks for itself, almost, and is available here for anyone interested.
I’ve read it twice now; it’s only 21-pages long and it’s very well written indeed. I’m going to read it a third time before I comment any further, but I just wanted to say a quick thank you to Fighting Monsters and to Public Concern at Work for allowing me to see, in part, the reasons why I was beginning to think that the pea had been stolen from my whistle, over the recent years of my own attempts to blow it in the ears of those charged with providing decent standards of care in the UK.
“Public Concern at Work is the leading independent authority on whistleblowing in the UK. We run a free advice line for those who have witnessed crime, danger or wrongdoing at work.” I wish I’d heard of Public Concern at Work before now – because I could have pointed a few people in the right direction.
It’s not just my pea that’s been stolen.
If I forget to return to this report, I’ll be surprised – or it may mean that I’ve been abducted.
