Reporting concerns

WFSA is committed to meeting the highest ethical standards and ensuring that our work is delivered in a way that is consistent with our values and aims, and compliant with all relevant laws and regulations. We strive to create a culture where everyone feels valued, safe and respected, and we support our partners to do the same.

We have a zero-tolerance approach to serious misconduct of any kind, including safeguarding, anti-bribery and corruption and fraud or misuse of resources.

The WFSA Code of Conduct outlines the standards we expect from all WFSA employees, volunteers, consultants and partners and those working in an official WFSA capacity.

How to report a concern to us

If you have serious concerns relating to the conduct of WFSA employees, volunteers, consultants and partners working on our behalf, or to projects we are funding with a partner then we would encourage you to raise these with us. 

You can submit a confidential report to this email address: whistleblowing@wfsahq.org. This address is monitored by the Partnerships Manager.

Alternatively concerns can be sent to governance@wfsahq.org this is monitored by the Governance Officer.

If you think that someone is at immediate risk of harm, please contact the relevant local authorities. If you are in the UK you can contact the police by dialling 999.

What happens next?

Once WFSA has received your report it will be assessed, and where appropriate an investigation will be launched into the suspected wrongdoing(s). If it is a criminal matter, the relevant authorities will be informed.

Your information will be treated in confidence. You do not have to provide personal details, however such information will assist us in taking forward your concerns and enable us to provide you with a response on the outcome. If you ask us not to disclose your identity we will not do so without your consent, unless required by law.
