The Launch of Whistleblowers UK

Whistleblowers UK would like to invite the press, members of the public, students and all interested parties to its official launch on Wednesday 12 December at 12.30 at City University London.

Whistleblowers UK is a new and unique not-for-profit organisation devoted to the support and defence of Whistleblowers. The purpose of Whistleblowers UK is to champion the importance, and critical role of whistleblowers in a democracy. The organisation is composed of whistleblowers from every walk of life, their immediate supporters and those considering alerting the public to issues of public importance.

Many of those with the courage to speak out have experienced great difficulties and faced personal retribution when they’ve exposed cruelty, injustice or corruption. Whistleblowers UK will provide a network of support, legal advice and other services needed by those who have had the courage to speak out and do the right thing. Crucially, it will also offer experientially based advice to those considering what course to take.


Leading whistleblowers, their lawyers and supporters will be attending and will be available to answer questions about their new organisation.

Whistleblowers UK has been featured in several media publications since September, including The Economist and the Financial Times.

If you are a member of the press and would like to arrange interviews with any of the whistleblowers or would like more information, please call: 020 7040 8220.

Venue and registration details:

The launch will take place from 12.30-2.00pm in the Oliver Thompson Lecture Theatre at City University London, EC1V 0HB (Please use the main Northampton Square entrance to University Building).
