Whistleblowing Policy


Fraud, malpractices and misconduct by Management & Staff have a negative impact on an organisation. Most reported cases are uncovered through tips from people.  By reporting what they know is a sufficient enough first step to help ensure that the organisation continues to be ethical in its practices & conduct.

The APSN Whistleblowing Policy aims to provide a reporting channel for all stakeholders to make such a report. The information provided will be channelled to the Whistleblowing Investigation Panel comprising the President of the APSN’s Board, the Chairperson of its Audit & Risk Committee, and the Chairperson of its Human Capital Committee.

The reports and identities of the whistle-blowers will be kept confidential to the extent feasible and permissible under the law.


As a general guide, whistleblowing matters typically encompass the following broad categories, including but not limited to:

i) General misconduct
ii) Breach of laws, rules & regulations
iii) Conflict of interest transactions
iv) Unsafe practices endangering the health and safety of another person

For non-whistleblowing feedback on APSN operations, programmes and human resource policies, please go to


Reports should be as specific and detailed as possible; and can be sent via email or ordinary mail to:


Ordinary Mail: Whistleblowing Panel

Association for Persons with Special Needs
900 New Upper Changi Road

Only reports pertaining to matters that fall under the Whistleblowing scope will be investigated.  Based on the nature of the report, the Whistleblowing Investigation Panel may assign an appropriate staff or set up a team to investigate the allegations raised in the  report.   All findings and recommendations of the investigation shall be reported to the Panel for decisions on action(s) to be taken. Where appropriate, and subject to any legal and confidentiality constraints, the whistle-blower may be notified of the outcome of the investigation.
