Slide 29 in an International Youth Project

Confidentiality

  • Confidentiality

  • ・ Confidentiality is about managing sensitive information that arises in a trusting relationship and doing so in a manner that is respectful, professional and purposeful.

  • Confidentiality may arise as an issue when

  • ・ Leaders receive personal information about young people;

  • ・ Young people receive personal information about other young people; Anyone, (volunteer/employee or young person) disclosing information in this context needs to know in advance the limits of confidentiality and the responsibilities attached. All information regarding concerns of possible child abuse should only be shared on “a need to know” basis with appropriate persons, in the interests of the child or young person.

Reporting Incidents Involving Risk/Harm

When an incident involving risk or harm to a young person occurs:

Who do you report this to?

e.g. Police / Social Services / Child Protection Services

How do you make a report?

e.g. by telephone, in person, in writing

Who else needs to be informed?

e.g. the young person’s family and who should do this?
