Feedback or getting involved


If you believe there is wrongdoing in your workplace or within the public services provided by the council (for example corruption or wrongdoing such as improper, illegal or negligent behaviour), you can report this by following the whistleblowing procedure. Your employment rights are protected.

The official term for whistleblowing is ‘making a disclosure in the public interest’, however it is much more commonly called ‘blowing the whistle’ or ‘whistleblowing’.

Hull City Council takes whistleblowing seriously. The council is committed to maintaining an honest, fair and open culture with the highest standards of honesty and accountability.

The council expects employees, members, and others with whom we deal, including members of the public, who have concerns about any aspect of the council’s work to come forward and voice those concerns without fear of victimisation, subsequent discrimination or disadvantage.
