What type of information is collected from you?
This can depend on why you are contacting the charity.
If you are calling or emailing the helpline, the personal data we might collect will be stored securely on our database and only sent to a third party with your permission. Our system only enables sending personal data to third parties if you expressly give permission to progress the support we offer you.
Generally, details of this information will be retained for 5 years and will then be anonymised for research purposes. However, if we are continuing to support you beyond a 5-year period this information will be securely retained. The anonymised data enables the charity to analyse its performance and the number of people it is supporting.
If you are applying for funding; you will be asked to fill out a Funding Application Form (FAF).
The information held on this form is stored on our secure database and a record is kept of all the awards from our grants system that you have been given by the charity. Whilst we continue to support a person their data will be retained on our secure database. If we have stopped supporting someone for a period of 1 year, their data will be anonymised for analysis of the charity’s performance and the levels of engagement and funding.

As some of our events are filmed, we understand that photographs and filmed images of people are considered personal data as they can be identified by these images. Prior to any events which are being filmed, all attendees will be asked when booking their tickets to consent to them being filmed. There will also be notices clearly marked at the venue and all attendees will be required to sign a simple consent form when they register on the day.
