Looking after your social care information

Privacy notice for children in need receiving services from local authorities, including those looked after, to cover Welsh Government responsibilities.

The Welsh Government (WG) has access to the data of children in need receiving services from local authorities.  You, as either the parent or carer of such a child, or as such a child yourself over the age of 12, have the right to be informed about the processing and uses of this data by WG.  Detailed information is available on the Welsh Government website

Which data does WG have access to?

By law, local authorities (LAs) must provide details of children in need receiving services from them to WG, and this will include:

•    personal and sensitive personal information about you (or your child), such as date of birth, gender, ethnic group, disability status and other health information;
•    basic details of the service provided to you (or your child) and why these are provided; and
•    information allowing WG to compare the education performance of children in need with all other children.

However, the data sent to WG will not include your name (or that of your child).

How will the data be used by WG?

The data sent to WG will be used by them:

•    to measure how well WG and LAs are delivering their services to you (or your child);
•    to support improvements to these services;
•    to allocate of money to LAs and others; or
•    to support wider research into the provision of services to you (or your child), or others.

The data sent to WG will not be used by them:

•    to take any action in relation to you (or your child); nor
•    to identify you (or your child) in any reports.

The data sent to WG will be held securely by them and it will only be shared with others under strict controls.  It will never be shared in such a way that would allow you (or your child) to be identified.
