We have listed the relevant documents in a later section and can make any available.
What Personal Information we Collect About Service Users
As a registered care provider, we must collect some personal information on our service users, including financial information, which is essential to our being able to provide effective care and support. The information is contained in individual files (manual and electronic) and other record systems, all of which are subject to strict security and authorised access policies. Personal Information that becomes inactive, eg from enquiries or prospective users who do not enter the service is also kept securely for as long as it is needed, before being safely disposed.
How we Collect Information
The bulk of service users’ personal information is collected directly from them or through form filling, mainly manually, but also electronically for some purposes, eg when contacting the service via its website.
We might continue to build on information provided on enquiry and referral forms and for example, from needs assessments, which feed into care and support plans.
What we do with Personal Information
All personal information obtained on service users is used only to ensure that we provide a service, which is consistent with our purpose of providing a person-centred care service, which meets all regulatory standards and requirements. It will not be disclosed or shared for any other purpose.

With Whom we Might Share Information
We only share the personal information of service users with their consent on a “need to know” basis, observing strict protocols in doing so. Most information sharing of service users’ information is with other professionals and agencies involved with care and treatment.
The only exceptions to this general rule would be where we are required by law to provide information e.g to help with a criminal investigation. Even when seeking to notify the local authority of a safeguarding matter or the Care Quality Commission of an incident that requires us to notify it, we would ensure that the information provided is treated in confidence.
Where we provide information for statistical purposes, the information is aggregated and provided anonymously so that there is no privacy risk involved in its use.
