Confidentiality and Impartiality

The service is confidential and you will be asked for permission for us to speak with professionals on your behalf. This service is at arms length to the council, meaning that the advice we provide is completely impartial. We have a duty to report safeguarding issues if we feel the client or someone else is in immediate risk. This will generally be discussed with the client beforehand.

It is best to ring and make an appointment to make sure we can deal with the issue effectively and someone is available to speak with you.
