Lincolnshire Rape Crisis is a confidential service.
We do not insist on having your personal details and you do not have to give us your real name.
We don’t trace calls and your number will not show up, so unless you give us identifying information (such as your full name or address) you will remain anonymous.
We will not share what you have said to us with anyone outside Lincolnshire Rape Crisis Service.
We will only make a note of basic information if you request us to, this may be helpful for you if you call again, speak to a different volunteer and don’t want to repeat what you have previously said.
We will only break confidentiality if:
- You request us to
- If you've given us identifying information, and you’re a vulnerable adult, and we're concerned for your safety
- If you are a child at risk, or you are giving us identifying information about a child at risk. We will discuss this with you first and we will remind you, before you give us identifying information, of our duty under Child Protection and Vulnerable Adult Legislation
Please note: Our number is not hidden and therefore will be displayed on your bill as usual.
