It's supposed to be anonymous, but they may ask you your name. I would personally call from a public phone and not give your name. I have heard of a time where the informant was revealed.
Call on the hotline. You can be completely anonymous.
They are NOT supposed to reveal it if you report anonymously. However, they need to know who you are so THEY can do any follow up needed and take your report seriously. (like you aren't faking a bunch of lies and calling anonymously on some one).
In the cases that I've known of... people sometimes find out because they "suspect" who called and they go confront them and then they argue. So, if you do and they confront you... make sure you are good at being non-committal.
They will ask your name in case they need to contact you again but, it won't be released. I've done it a few times.
You can do it anonymously.
Go anonymous. When I was caring for my grandma someone called adult social services on me(out of spite). My grandma and I looked at eachother like "what the heck?" And we started listing of the names out loud of who would possibly do this and the SS worker although wouldn't say WHO it was, she was happy to tell us WHO it wasn't- we new exactly who it was

While you can do it anon, I've read somewhere it is sometimes best to give your name and number in case they have followup questions.
They CANNOT give out the name of the person who gave the report though.
Quoting Karopie_99:Tell them you are making an anonymous call and you tell them what is going on and they will ask questions about the situation and gice them answers. Pretty simple
