HOW TO GET HELP

Did you ever detect corrupt behavior at your workplace and reported it, yet nothing happened? Perhaps even worse, instead of being listened to, you were reprimanded, threatened with a law suit, demoted, reassigned or even fired?

Apply for assistance by filling out the form HERE – REQUEST FOR GRANTING OF AID (*please note that the Center is currently only accepting cases with effect only for the territory of the Republic of Slovenia and in Slovene language).

The Center set up a fund for donations, which go towards supporting whistleblowers financially and otherwise, when they lose their source of income and need to pay for a lawyer, get an expert opinion, psychological or psycho-social support, IT competent assistance, help dealing with the media and even personal security. According to the law, these donations are not considered humanitarian help so all your support can be taxable in accordance with relevant legislation.    

All applications are first reviewed by a team of experts, led by Center’s Managing Director, while the eligibility for any form of assistance, provided by the Center, is determined and awarded by The Whistleblowers protection Committee.
