400 X 400 Georgina Halford Hall

Georgina Halford-Hall

Chief Executive Officer of WhistleblowersUK

Georgina Halford-Hall is widely regarded as a leading authority in the field of Whistleblowing in the UK and more widely across the globe.

Having been vindicated herself after blowing the whistle on financial irregularities and poor practice in a charity, Georgina had learnt the hard way that no matter what position you hold in an organisation people who have the courage to whistle-blow are targeted, isolated and unsupported.

She proceeded to set up WhistleblowersUK to address these issues through the provision of practical help, information and support, provide advice in complex litigation and to lobby for effective whistleblower protection.

Georgina regularly advises Government, MPs, regulatory bodies and organisations in both the public and private sectors on best practice, statutory responsibilities and ethical obligations.

Her work in this area has resulted in the setting up of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Whistleblowing to which WhistleblowersUK has been appointed the Secretariat. Georgina is now Director of Strategy and Policy for this group, a role added to her busy life overseeing the development of WhistleblowersUK, an active caseload and speaking engagements.

Georgina is spokesperson for WhistleblowersUK and is frequently quoted in media articles and interviews. https://www.wbuk.org/news/

Georgina says: "Whistleblowing legislation was until the late 1990’s led by the UK, long before the Human Rights Act, sadly in recent years we have failed to keep up with best practice. We are told repeatedly that the last expose signals a “#NeverAgain moment”, a strapline that we need to turn into a reality if lessons are to be learnt and acted upon. Preventing the preventable and treating those who speak out with respect go hand in hand. I would like to see radical change in the way that senior leaders respond to whistleblowers and the introduction of meaningful penalties for those who flout the law and compensation for victims.”
