Do You Have A Concern?


Thursday April 26 2018 09:21 AM

The Board and Chief Executive of the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Ireland are committed to maintaining the highest standards of honesty, openness and accountability. Members and employees are often the first people who realise that there may be something seriously wrong within an organisation such as MS Ireland.

The purpose of the Whistleblowing Policy is to outline the procedures for dealing with whistleblowing concerns, to confirm MS Ireland’s commitment to observing and maintaining the highest standards of honesty, openness and accountability in all its practices and to re-iterate the availability of existing policies for addressing other less serious non-whistleblowing issues and grievances.

This Policy aims to encourage and enable people to raise serious concerns within MS Ireland through appropriate channels.

“Whistle-blowing” arises where any person has a significant concern about any aspect of service provision in MS Ireland or the conduct of MS Ireland’s leadership, managers and employees or other parties acting on behalf of MS Ireland, amounting to a wrongdoing.

“Wrongdoing”, for the purposes of this Policy, includes conduct indicating:

  • commission of an offence or other unlawful act
  • a breach of a legal or regulatory obligation
  • a miscarriage of justice
  • deemed financial malpractice
  • consistently putting the health and safety of an individual(s) in danger
  • consistently improper conduct or unethical behaviour
  • a significant breach of the Society’s policies; and/or established standards of practice

A deliberate concealment of information relating to any of the above can and should be reported under this Policy.
