Complaints and feedback
What is it?
Whistleblowing is a procedure which enables employees, councillors and members of the public to express any concerns they have about illegal or illegitimate practices involving the council.
You can raise your concerns without fear of victimisation, discrimination or disadvantage.
Please note: Complaints about a council service are handled separately - find out how to make a complaint about a council service.

If you would like to tell us about what you believe is an illegal or illegitimate practice involving the council, please use the online form or phone number below.
Or call us on 0151 233 8613.
How will my whistleblowing referral be dealt with?
All whistleblowing referrals are confidential and will be treated sensitively. We will channel them to the most appropriate officer and will keep you informed of who is dealing with the referral and how.
You will not be given any copies of investigative reports or audits, but we may advise you informally of the conclusions of the investigation.
Not all whistleblowing referrals will warrant a full investigation as it may be that the matter can be resolved informally because the information has been misinterpreted.
