Information sharing & data protection Statement
We will use the information in this form to consider whether to conduct a needs assessment under the requirements of the Children & Families Act 2014.
We may also share relevant information on a confidential basis with the Department for Education and Local Government, other Government agencies and other public bodies involved with the implementation of the new legislation as required to meet our statutory obligations.
The information that you and other professionals provide will normally be shared with your consent. Examples of situations when we may share information without your consent are:
- If we need to find out urgently if a child is at risk of harm or we need to help a child who is at risk of harm.
- If we need to help an adult who is at risk of harm.
- If we need to help prevent or detect a serious crime.
GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation)
As from May 25th 2018, the rules in respect of data protection changed. The 'General Data Protection Regulation' (GDPR) has changed how we can use you and your child's personal data, and how we keep it safe. Compliance with the regulations will be managed through the local authority's Data Protection Team.
