Lincolnshire Rape Crisis is a confidential service.
Confidentiality: You can choose to remain anonymous throughout your contact with us. If you do give us your contact details or provide identifiable information, we will usually keep your contact with us completely confidential. However, there are exceptions when we may have to share information with another agency in order to protect you or another person. These exceptions are:
If we have evidence that there is a child currently being abused or is at risk of any form of abuse
If we believe that you are at risk of seriously harming yourself or others
If you inform us of a serious crime (your own or someone else’s) that has not previously been disclosed
If we believe you have committed a crime of treason or act of terrorism
We are happy to discuss this further with you. If we do need to share information, we will talk to you before whenever possible.
Case files: All contact with Lincolnshire Rape Crisis is recorded securely, either anonymously if you do not disclose your details, or on a case file unique to you. Your information is yours and you can see it on request. If you decide to report to the police, the Crown Prosecution Service may ask to have access to your notes. We will always discuss this with you first.
