About Speak Up - The Whistleblowers' Helpline

Christmas Opening Hours: The Speak Up Helpline will close from 8pm 20 December 2021 until 10am 5 January.

The Speak Up Helpline is open Monday to Friday, 10am to 6pm (excluding public holidays). It is operated by trained staff and volunteers.  You can get in touch with our Speak Up Helpline team by freephone, our new Secure Report Form, email, post or Signal app.

The Speak Up Helpline offers information, referral advice and/or advocacy support to people looking to report wrongdoing, or to witnesses and victims of corruption or other wrongdoing. Learn more about what we do, cannot do and what to expect when you contact us.

People who want to make a protected disclosure (commonly known as whistleblowing) may be offered an appointment with the Transparency Legal Advice Centre (TLAC). Our free Speak Up Safely Guide and COVID-19 guidance for workers provide some useful information to consider when making a protected disclosure.

If you have a general inquiry about the services we offer, you can also email helpline[at] Please do not share any sensitive information, including your employer’s name or details of your concern when using our unencrypted email address.
