We won’t tell anyone you spoke with us and we de-personalise all information we gather. This means you won’t be able to be identified.
When we talk with you, we write down what you say so we don’t forget, but we won’t write your name. Our notes are stored safely and securely where only certain staff from our organisation can see them.
We sometimes use quotes in our reports, but we will only do this if they do not identify the person who spoke with us.
Your name will not be shared with anyone unless we are worried about your safety, the safety of someone else, or a serious crime has been committed. If this happens, we will discuss it with you first, as long as it is safe to.
If we are talking to you in a group, other people may say things that they don’t want anyone else to know, so please don’t share what they say with anyone.
