Information Sharing

To follow any changes to this service, visit the Council Service Updates page.

In many cases when you give your personal information to the council there will be no need to share it.

On other occasions we will need to share your personal information with another department or organisation, for example to deliver a service you require or to ensure your welfare and protection.

Sometimes we will need to ask you for your consent to share your information but at other times it will be considered reasonable to share without your consent. If we do need to ask for your consent you will be given the option to say no. We will explain why we are sharing your information and who with, apart from in a few situations when the law permits otherwise.
