10.3 Raising Concerns At Work: Whistleblowing Guidance for Workers and Employers in Health and Social Care
Any organisation that has adults working or volunteering with children must have a policy making it clear that a person can raise concerns about a colleague or volunteer in confidence and encourage people to feel confident in raising such concerns. All staff and volunteers have a duty to pass on any concerns or allegations of inappropriate behaviour by another volunteer or staff member without delay or prejudice.
Please see the link below to the guidance, which although is written for Health and Social Care staff contains good practice for all organisations, including Foster Carers.
