Whistleblowers Australia

Whistleblowers Australia is a national organisation relying entirely on volunteers. Our members are whistleblowers and their supporters. We encourage self-help and mutual help among whistleblowers, and we support campaigns on specific issues such as free speech for employees and whistleblower legislation. We do not undertake formal advocacy on behalf of individuals.

Membership is open to anyone who supports the group's aims. Our modest income, about $5000 per year, comes from memberships and donations. We publish a newsletter, The Whistle; all issues are available below.

If you want to contact someone about whistleblowing matters, email or phone a member of the national committee. If you want to read information about whistleblowing, go to basic information and, for more detail, to documents on suppression of dissent.
