This service is confidential and will only be shared with other agencies with your agreement.
You will be asked to sign a consent to share form. This allows you to say which agencies we can share, store, receive or request information from.
There are some exceptions to this. If we feel that a child or young person is at significant risk of harm we have a duty to report our concerns to social services, following child protection procedures. Also, in certain circumstances, if we think there is a risk of a crime being committed we will share information in order to offer further protection.
We may inform your partner, if you have one, that you are receiving support from PODAS to challenge and change abusive behaviours, but no details of the support you are receiving will be shared with your partner.
