What issues of confidentiality might there be for volunteers?
What should a volunteer do in this situation?
What procedures are in place already to deal with these issues?
Who can help me?
Details about a client must not be shared with anyone (including your family/friends) other than appropriate Trust staff.
However, confidentiality can never be absolute, so if you suspect or fear a risk – do act and inform your link member (your project contact) of staff.

One Plus One and Altogether Better
We would like to know how you get on and we are interested in hearing about how you help people with their relationship or develop a community activity.
It would be good if you could capture what happens when you do. We have templates if that is useful?
Please focus on what you have done to help and what happened as a result rather than details about the individuals you support.
Suggestions to improve the e-resource or useful local contacts are very welcome too.
You are invited to an event at the Showroom in Sheffield on Wednesday 26 September to thank you for getting involved as a volunteer and to hear about your experience as a relationship champion.
We hope you can make it.
