Report fraud

  • Are you concerned about someone abusing Wiltshire council’s services or premises
  • Are you someone working with Wiltshire council that has witnessed malpractice?
  • Report it by calling our 24-hour phone line 01249 706456 or via My Wiltshire
  • All reports are treated in the strictest of confidence

You can report:

  • Fraud
  • Illegal practice
  • Or any sort of cover up or wrongdoing

People often feel nervous about coming forward and reporting things that they may have witnessed or be aware of.

It is important to remember that those issues affect everybody and may be putting people at risk or costing both the council and the taxpayer money.

It is of benefit to all residents of Wiltshire that any illegal activities are identified and stopped as soon as possible.


Our whistleblowing policy is adopted to help people that have concerns over any wrongdoing within the council, i.e. unlawful conduct, financial malpractice or dangers to the public or the environment.

Our  Anti fraud and corruption strategy supports the our vision to create stronger more resilient communities by reducing fraud and corruption and ensuring council funds are properly directed to essential services.

Benefit fraud is investigated by the Department for Work and Pensions.
To report benefit fraud, call the National Benefit Fraud Hotline on 0800 854 440; or complete the DWP benefit fraud reporting form.

The local government transparency code affords the opportunity for residents to see how money is spent. The section in respect of local authorities is referred to in the UK Anti-Corruption Plan as an aid to making anti-corruption issues more transparent. We are required to publish details of our counter fraud work.

The anti fraud and corruption strategy and counter fraud work PDF can be found in the downloads section.
