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. The only stated exception is where there is a person or child at risk, where there is Legal Guidance that we are required to disclose information to the relevant authorities. 

CSN contacts have a suitably qualified member of the CSN - a supervisor - with whom they may on occasions share case information (without identifying any individual caller), for support and to ensure that the best possible help is being offered.

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.
