We will never divulge personal information or discuss any client information with any third party unless we have the express, written permission of the client.  The only exception to this will be where we believe that the safety of a child or vulnerable adult is at risk.  Where this is the case we will always aim to discuss with the client first wherever possible, and the information will only be shared with the relevant agencies on a need to know basis.  See our Safeguarding Policy for further information. Information will never be shared with a private third party under any circumstances (for example family or friends)
