Confidentiality explained

MYPAS keep records of all young people who access the service and all staff have access to this information e.g. name, date of birth, address and what services you are using at MYPAS.
When you talk to a worker here at MYPAS, you have the right to expect anything you say will not be spoken about without your permission…

Unless…

Something you have said makes the MYPAS worker believe you or someone else may be in danger or at risk of significant harm. Keeping your safety and the safety of others in mind, the worker will act in your best interest. The worker will always endeavour to talk with you first if they think that they may have to break confidentiality.
