Whistleblowing Policy for Saltcoats St Cuthbert’s Church of Scotland: Issue date 01 September 2022

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.
