Whistleblowing charity Public Concern at Work (PCaW) is inviting all care home staff to take part in a very short survey to build a clear picture of whistleblowing in care homes. The survey is open until the end of April.
The results (email addresses and names will not be captured or featured in this survey) will help PCaW campaign for stronger whistleblowing in care homes.
PCaW says that its whistleblowing advice line receives 400 calls a year from the care sector, which it believes is just “scratching the surface of the problems facing care homes”. This service helps whistleblowers safely raise concerns about their workplace as well as support organisations to put in place an accessible whistleblowing culture through training, consultancy and organisational reviews.
Andrew Pepper-Parsons, PCaW head of policy explains: “Alerting managers to potential risks, wrongdoing or malpractice long before it becomes a problem is a good thing.”
