Glasgow Women's Aid operates on the premise that women, children and young people approaching us for confidential support and information are entitled to have their desire for confidentiality respected.
In general, no information given in confidence by any woman, child or young person will be divulged to any person outside Glasgow Women's Aid.
Glasgow Women's Aid workers will only breach confidentiality if they consider a child or young person to be at risk. Wherever possible, and if appropriate, they will be informed before any action is taken.
The Children (Scotland) Act 1995 states that each child has the right to protection from all forms of abuse, neglect and exploitation. It also states that children have the right to express their views on any issues or decisions affecting them.
