What our callers say about us

"You helped me to step back and see the bigger picture, understand all of our options and helped me in particular try to remain calm in the face of extreme adversity."
(Caller to PCaW advice line, 2013)
"You enabled me to put my very serious concerns forward to my Organisation in an appropriate and articulate way. You also supported me in feeling safe and protected from any backlash.....I feel that PCAW is a vital resource that MUST be protected at all costs, as in my case it has safeguarded so many vulnerable adults and staff as well as re-established my trust in my Organisation to respond and protect me as a whistleblower"
