Under the United Kingdom General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR) & The Data Protection Act 2018 it is a requirement to obtain your consent to share information about you with other agencies and organisations who may be involved in providing services to you. You have a right to prevent this and therefore do not have to consent if you do not want your information to be shared. However, it may be difficult to provide you with some of the services you need if you do not give your consent.
Once your referral has been made to the correct agency your information will be managed under that agencies own data protection policy and processes.
I give my permission for agencies to obtain further information from all other relevant agencies which may include, for example, Adult and Community Services, landlords, police, probation, benefits agencies and housing benefit offices.
I understand that this information will only be made available to providers/organisations operating under the Durham Mental Wellbeing Alliance that are able to assist me to obtain the correct level of support and enable me to sustain independent accommodation.
