I was appalled today to see the founder of the charity the "National Bullying Helpline" breach a confidence and state that workers in Gordon Browns office called the line. As a charity manager for a CAB, who are mildly (and rightly) obsessed with confidentiality, I cannot conceive of a reason for releasing client details without permission.
The charity is actually a very small one and not part of the national network of helplines, the helplines association. I agree with Nick Clegg that the allegations of bullying should be investigated but this charity has breached one of the cardinal rules of charities that help people, that clients details should not be released. Two wrongs do not make a right.
