Everything that you talk about with your key worker will remain confidential just between you and her. We want you to feel able to tell us how you are feeling and what is happening with you and to know that this is confidential.
It is very important that you know we will not share this information with anyone UNLESS we think that you or another child or young person is at risk of being harmed. A worker will always try to talk to you before she tells anyone.
Children and young people have the right not to be abused at Hemat Gryffe we work to protect all children and young people and keep them safe.
