Accountability and Whistleblowing
CCL is committed to upholding the strongest standards of conduct among its leadership, staff and volunteers, the below policy is in place to ensure robust accountability is in place for those in leadership positions.
If you discover any information which you believe shows serious malpractice, illegal actions, wrongdoing or unacceptable behaviours or practises by CCL’s Senior Leader, the church leadership, its employees or volunteers, we ask you to report it.
Examples of concerns may include but are not limited to, financial impropriety or fraud, manipulation, or coercion from a position of control or power, or inappropriate behaviours of a physical or mental nature which don’t befit the standards expected of a church leader.
Legislation protects those who raise legitimate concerns. Your concern could be about one of the things listed above, or anything else that you feel uncomfortable about. It could be about things that are happening now, have happened in the past, or are likely to happen in the future, see www.gov.uk/whistleblowing
