Whistleblowing policy

Through good recruitment practice and other procedures, Blue Cross actively seeks to recruit people who will not compromise our integrity or reputation in relation to our charitable status, our employees or our financial affairs.

No organisation can afford to be complacent, however, and we expect and encourage all individuals working for us at all levels and grades, whether they are senior managers, directors, employees, contractors, or agency employees (collectively referred to as employees in this policy) and volunteers to share the responsibility for raising concerns about the behaviour of other employees or volunteers which may cause or result in harm to the animals, other employees or volunteers, the public or our reputation.
