Northamptonshire Carers is registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office and acts in accordance with the Data Protection Act (1998). Under this Act your personal information will be treated as confidential, kept safe and secure, used fairly and lawfully and not kept for longer than is necessary.

When contracted to do so (such as in the provision of Carers Assessments on behalf of the County Council), some data will be shared. This will be explained at  the time and your consent asked. Please contact us for further information or download our Information Governance leaflet.

We want to make this as easy as possible to understand but appreciate that it can appear complicated. If you have a minute, we'd be grateful if you could answer the quick poll on your right hand side which will help us improve how we keep you informed about Information Governance.
