External Speak Up Phone Line

Access an external Speak Up Guardian

Provide that extra level of confidence and anonymity to encourage speaking up and whistleblowing. Our online Anonymous Speak Up platform is a great way to ensure your people can easily raise concerns.  Some people prefer the ability to contact a qualified Speaking Up contact, which in some regulated sectors is a regulatory requirement.  Having someone outside of your organisation gives that extra confidence to your staff.  Making speaking up safe and easy means you are likely to spot and resolve problems more often and operate better. 

Speak Up Guardians are provided by our associated company Freedom To Speak Limited. They operate to the same high standards as WorkInConfidence. They provide specially trained contacts to facilitate Speaking Up.
