Online forms: Whistle blowing fraud referral form

This form has a maximum of 4 pages

Whistleblowing is a procedure designed to allow employees, councillors and members of the public to express any concerns they have with the council and to do so without fear of victimisation, discrimination or disadvantage.

All referrals will be treated sensitively and in the strictest of confidence. The Whistleblower will not be supplied with copies of any investigation type reports or audit reports, but may be advised informally of the conclusion of the investigation etc.
Referrals can be raised anonymously and the matter will still be considered for investigation depending on the information given, however it would assist the investigation if the Whistleblower gave their details and was prepared to give a statement, evidence, etc.
In order for us to investigate fraud effectively you should provide as much information as you can. The information you provide will be confidential and we will not disclose who has provided the information.

You can contact the fraud team on the fraud hotline 0208 583 2111 to provide additional or new information, however, we cannot tell you about the investigation.
You  should NOT use this form to report the following types of fraud :

  1. Housing benefit

  3. Council Tax
