Confidentiality

Important Statement

In a small, closely-knit community such as ours, the risk of loss of trust and breach of confidentiality is potentially very real. The Christadelphian Support Network (CSN) committee has, as a matter of absolute priority, always emphasised the need to be aware of, and to avoid, this risk.

In becoming CSN members, all members sign a form committing to the principle of confidentiality and our concern is for best practice in helping each brother and sister in need.

Therefore, when calls for help are received, everything that is discussed will remain confidential, except on the rare occasion that there is a person or child at risk, when we are ethically bound to disclose information.

All CSN first contacts have the support of a suitably qualified supervisor who is a member of the CSN and with whom they may share case information (without identifying any individual caller) for support and to ensure that they are offering the best possible help.

You may be encouraged to make contact with your ecclesia for support but we stand by our assurance of confidentiality if that is your wish.
