Confidentiality is fundamental to the services Beat provides. However, there are some exceptional circumstances where we may pass on information, for example:

  • We suspect a child may be at risk from harm
  • A caller is at serious risk of harm, either from themselves or others
  • A caller threatens or abuses our staff
