Saltcoats St Cuthbert’s has implemented a whistleblowing policy, a copy of which can be downloaded below. A Copy can also be found on the Church Noticeboard at the end of the link corridor
Whistleblowing is when someone knows, or suspects, that there is some wrongdoing involving illegal and/or underhand practices occurring within the congregation and alerts the right person within the congregation, or the relevant authority, accordingly.
• that a criminal offence has been committed, is being committed, or is likely to be committed (including financial malpractice or acts of bribery);
• that a person has failed, is failing, or is likely to fail to comply with a legal obligation to which they are subject;
• that the health and safety of any individual has been, is being, or is likely to be endangered;
• that the congregation is attempting to suppress or conceal any information relating to any of the above.
