Speaking Out (Whistle Blowing) Policy
Surrey County Council is committed to the highest possible standards of honesty, openness, probity and accountability. It seeks to conduct its affairs in a responsible manner, to ensure that all Council activities are open and effectively managed, and that the Council’s integrity and principles of public interest disclosure are sustained. The policy has been published in line with that commitment we encourage employees, those working on behalf of the Council and others that we deal with, who have serious concerns about any aspect of the Council’s work to come forward and voice those concerns.
Staff and contractors can use the Expolink hotline service for whistleblowing. You can call them any time, night or day, in complete confidence if you have concerns that another person, acting on behalf of the Council, is involved in criminal activity, fraud, theft or damage to Council property or reputation. Your call will not be traced or monitored. Freephone: 0800 374199
