Whistleblowing is when someone reports concerns around activities that are illegal or harmful etc. So the policy is needed because it sets out how to report things, and when and what should be reported.

So something that would be covered under the policy in a childcare setting is if you thought your manager was abusing a child. The whistleblowing policy will explain who you need to tell - you can't ignore it, but you can't tell your manager if you have concerns about them. So there might be a specific safeguarding team to notify, and this will be explained in the policy. The policy also says how you notify them - is it a phonecall, or email, or letter etc.
The policy will also explain what will happen afterwards, so you'll know if you can expect to have to attend meetings etc, which makes the process of raising a concern less daunting.

So it's needed so that people know what to raise, how to raise, what is expected etc. On a wider level, it's needed to help keep the children safe.
