Wycliffe Bible Translators believes that each person matters to God, which is why we want to see a world where everyone can know Jesus through the Bible.

Everyone serving with Wycliffe is expected to observe biblical standards of personal ethics, and comply with applicable laws and regulations. Wycliffe is committed to the deterrence, detection and correction of misconduct and dishonesty.

Whether you are a member of the public, or are part of Wycliffe, we invite you to report any concerns you may have about the behaviour of Wycliffe people around the world.


Wycliffe is committed to the safety, security and dignity of children and adults who are vulnerable or at risk.

Any allegation or concern regarding the abuse of a child or a vulnerable adult must be treated seriously and reported as soon as possible.

A concern can arise when you observe or suspect abusive behaviour, when an allegation is made or disclosed, or where there are indicators (signs and symptoms) of suspected abuse on the victim.

Any concerns regarding safeguarding issues should be reported to our independent reporting service, Lighthouse Services:

All concerns raised will be investigated thoroughly and action taken in line with Wycliffe’s Safeguarding policies and procedures.

Your confidentiality will be maintained to the fullest practical extent. The main exceptions are when the law requires disclosure, or when someone is at risk.

To find out more about our commitment to safeguarding see our Safeguarding page here.


If you discover information which you believe raises concerns about an issue which is in the public interest, for example, illegal actions, dishonesty, or fraud by Wycliffe members, employees or volunteers, we ask you to report it.

Legislation protects those who raise legitimate concerns. We also provide reassurance that individuals will be protected from reprisal, retaliation or victimisation if reporting in good faith.

If you would like to report a whistleblowing concern please contact our independent reporting service:

Issues will be investigated as soon as possible and action taken in line with Wycliffe’s whistleblowing policies and procedures.

We encourage anyone reporting a violation or suspected violation to identify themselves when making a report in order to facilitate the investigation of the violation. Reports will be kept confidential to the extent possible, with the understanding that confidentiality may not be maintained where identification is required by law or in order to enable Wycliffe or the appropriate authority to conduct an adequate investigation.

Note for those serving with Wycliffe (as members, employees, or volunteers): issues of a personal rather than public concern should be raised using Wycliffe’s internal grievance procedures.
