Policies

As a Community Interest Company we hold a number of policies:

  • Safeguarding children and adults
  • Confidentiality
  • Compliments and Complaints
  • Equality and Diversity
  • Code of Conduct
  • Privacy policy

Please feel free to contact us if you would like to see our policies.

When we meet you, we ask you to complete an initial form, asking for basic information, what your concerns are and what you hope to achieve by working with us, plus we ask you to sign an agreement which sets out what you can expect from us, fees, and how we hold your information and for how long. This needs to be completed before any work will commence.

General Data Protection Regulation 

The General Data Protection Regulations (2018) and The Data Protection Act (2016)

The privacy policy tells you what information we keep. This could be data about young people, parents/carers, staff and volunteers. By reading the privacy policy(ies) which is/are relevant to you, you will have a clearer understanding of how we collect information and what we do with it.

Everyone who is connected with our company is entitled to know what information we hold about them. Please ask us for a copy of the Subject Access Request form in order to obtain this information. As the law currently stands, young people who are 12 years or under have to have a Request made for them by a parent/carer. From the age of 13, the government judges that young people are old enough to make their own request. (This may change when the 2018 Data Protection Act goes through Parliament.)

When filling in the Subject Access Request forms, please read the guidance. This is likely to shorten the time needed for us to prepare the information that you have requested.

Every provider has to have a person responsible for data management. The Autism Apprentice CIC Representative is Sarah Aldridge. The GDPR Representative is the first person to approach with any queries or requests about these regulations.
