Meet The Team


 

Tom Lloyd QPM MA (Oxon)

Chairman

Tom is a former Police Chief Constable with extensive and varied experience including investigating serious complaints against police officers, and leading complex and sensitive inquiries.  Tom was the Director of Strategic Co-ordination at New Scotland Yard which gave him an in depth understanding of the complexity and challenges facing large organisations and of the structures and personal barriers people encounter when bringing concerns into the open. Tom's background in professional policing standards has brought him into contact with many cases of alleged misconduct and the problems associated with holding individuals and organisations to account.

Tom says, "Helping people who are being persecuted for doing the right thing needs experience, specialist knowledge, attention to detail and perseverance. At WhistleblowersUK we have a team of dedicated volunteer caseworkers, drawn from a variety of professional backgrounds, who use their expertise and commitment to ensure that whistle-blowers have the support they need when they need it most.”


Georgina Halford-Hall

Chief Executive

Georgina set up WhistleblowersUK after blowing the whistle on financial irregularities and poor practice in a charity. Eventually vindicated when investigations were concluded, what Georgina learnt was that people who have the courage to whistle-blow are very isolated and unsupported. WhistleblowersUK now ensures that people who put their head above the parapet and blow the whistle on wrongdoing have the help and guidance they need. 

Georgina regularly advises businesses, MPs and regulatory bodies on whistle-blowing legislation and obligations in the UK and the United States. As well as overseeing an active caseload, Georgina is the spokesperson for WhistleblowersUK and is often quoted in media articles and interviews. 

Georgina said, "WhistleblowersUK has helped dozens of people blow the whistle on issues and serious concerns in all types of organisation. I know from personal experience how hard it is for people to come forward and WhistleblowersUK is here to guide and support individuals and their families through what can be a very turbulent time."
