  • Information about your family and home life
  • School and the classes/courses you are on
  • Health and medical information
  • Any problems you might be having at school, at home or online

  • Other Council’s

We will only ever share your information if;

  • The law says we have to so that we can protect you

The law says children and young people are minors until you turn 18 which will mean that a lot of the time consent needs to be obtained from your parent or guardian around the support and services you receive but for young people aged between 13 and 18 you can make decisions on what we do with your information where we need your permission.  If you are still under 13 years old we will still need to make sure you have the support and permission of a parent or guardian though.
If you have any questions about the information we hold about you and what we do with it, get in touch with your support worker or social worker first, as they will better understand the support you are given, but for anything they cannot help you with, please call 0161 342 3859 or email
