REE values your right to privacy and to be supported in accessing online information that is useful to you as well as your right to be safe and protected from harm at all times. You should be aware that REE is not an emergency response service. When you message REE anonymously your conversation is always private and confidential and CLC staff do not routinely check your conversations with REE. Therefore in circumstances where you might tell REE that you or another young person are being harmed or are at risk of being harmed or self-harming, CLC will be unable to pass any information on to social services and/or the police. But REE can give you useful numbers to call if you need help right away. If you or another young person are being harmed or believe that you are at risk of being harmed you should contact the PSNI or Social Services immediately.
