Young People's Confidentiality - We won't tell anyone you've been to see us and we won't pass on your details to anyone UNLESS we think you are being hurt, or at risk of being hurt, or harming someone else, but we will talk to you about this first.

A set of laws apply to information about young people aged 13 and 15 called the Fraser Guidelines, these allow Professionals such as youth workers to offer sexual health advice and guidance and if it is a Health professional i.e. Doctor or Nurse, they can also prescribe contraception and other medication without your parent being told.
The only time this may be different is if the service thinks that you or someone else is at risk of harm and telling someone else may prevent you or them from being harmed. If a member of staff felt that they had to pass on information without your permission, they would still inform you of what they were going to do.
