Whistleblowing Reports to the Charity Commission Double in Two Years

Recently-released data from the Charity Commission for 2018-19 has shown that whistleblowers submitted 185 accounts over the year, a jump from 101 in 2017-2018 and a twofold increase compared with 88 reports in 2016-17.

Over 90% of reports come from current or former charity employees, with safeguarding, governance and fraud the most frequent concerns.

The Charity Commission report speculates that “this increase is likely to have been influenced by the high-profile nature of safeguarding incidents emerging from the carity sector this year, which may have encouraged others to come forward with concerns”.
