Womankind Confidentiality Policy
Information for clients
Womankind, Bristol Women’s Therapy Centre is committed to maintaining the highest standards of confidentiality in all of its work in order to ensure the safety and well-being of women who use the service.
Womankind provides a confidential service and no information will be given to any other person or agency without your consent. This includes information about whether or not you use our service. However, there are certain circumstances under which we may need to talk to other professionals about information you give us. These are as follows:
- In order to prevent or lessen a serious threat to yourself or another’s safety.
- There is a child protection issue. That is if you tell us about a child or children who are being abused or neglected or who are at risk of being abused or neglected.
- There is an allegation or reasonable suspicion of a vulnerable adult who is at risk of being abused or neglected.
- Womankind is required by law to do so.
Should we need to break confidentiality, we will always endeavour to seek your consent. If for any reason we are unable to get your consent then we will always inform you of any action that we have taken.
