Confidentiality Training - HWCGS Care
If you work in social care you have privileged access to information about the people you care for. They depend on you and you become involved in their personal affairs. If the support worker cannot be trusted to keep information safe, people who use services will feel insecure and unsafe. Confidentiality is the key to the confidence that people have in you as a social care worker. Confidence and confidentiality go hand in hand.
