b) Do you have a room where you can speak privately to clients? (Behind curtains or screens is clearly not private or confidential).
c) In your daily work, how might clients alert you that they wished to speak with you in private?
d) Do you currently have a clear referral pathway for clients to other services and support?
e) Do you know what services and supports are available for those who disclose domestic violence daily work, organisation and locality—and are contact details available to you?
