Report fraud within or against the council

If you have concerns regarding fraud and corruption within or against Westminster City Council and want to make the council aware of your suspicions you can report the fraud online or call the Fraud Hotline on 020 7361 2777.

Any information you provide will be treated in the strictest confidence. You do not even have to give us your name. The council's Fraud Investigation Team receives allegations and carries out investigations.

We ask that you provide us with as much information about the fraud as possible as this will enable an effective investigation to be carried out. Council employees are reminded that they too can use the hotline to report a fraud.

The work of the Fraud Investigation Team is split into 4 areas. These are:

  1. Residents parking permits and disabled badges being wrongfully obtained.
  2. Instances of Council housing being wrongfully obtained and allocated.
  3. Subletting of Council properties.
  4. Internal investigations into staff and contractors.

We would also be interested to hear from you if you suspect another form of fraud against the council, e.g. report a benefit fraud.
