The National Guardian’s Office is a ‘prescribed person’.
Prescribed people and bodies provide workers with an opportunity to make their public interest disclosure to an organisation other than their employer.
In accordance with the Prescribed Persons (Reports on Disclosures of Information) Regulations 2017, the National Guardian’s Office reports annually on the ‘qualifying disclosures’ it receives. The report summarises:
- The number of disclosures received
- How we have responded to them
- How they have affected our ability to perform our functions and meet our objectives.
Please see here for more information on prescribed persons, including the annual duty to report on disclosures.
