Sunbeams (Therapeutic Children's Group)

Confidentiality and  Safeguarding Children

We respect the confidentiality of clients attending the Liberty group and workshops.  However, we work in partnership with other professionals by contributing written reports to core meetings or conferences and communicating concerns about children's safety.  This will always be discussed with the family in line with Safeguarding Children's principles.  As you will appreciate, this topic is highly sensitive where personal safety is paramount.
