Prevent/Channel Data Sharing

Sam Andrews made this Freedom of Information request to Lincolnshire Housing Partnership Limited as part of a batch sent to 21 authorities
This authority is not subject to FOI law, so is not legally obliged to respond (details).
This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was refused by Lincolnshire Housing Partnership Limited.

Dear Lincolnshire Housing Partnership Limited,

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act.

According to the Prevent Duty, public institutions should pay due regard to Prevent. Many make arrangements under safeguarding policies to share data with the police or local Prevent/Channel bodies. This means that you should enter into Data Sharing Agreements (DSA) with regards to Prevent and/or Channel. According to legislation, DSA’s should be entered into after a Data Protection Impact Assessment has been carried out. Any data processing should be covered by a Data Processing Contract.

Please release:

1: Any Data Sharing Agreement(s) made with regards to Prevent and/or Channel, or which otherwise meet your obligations under the Prevent Duty.

2: Any Data Protection Impact Assessment done in relation to these Data Sharing Agreement(s).

3: Any Data Processing Contract(s) relevant to the Data Sharing Agreement(s).

Please also answer the following questions:

4: Where is Prevent-related data stored?

5: Is this a separate database to other databases you keep?

6: Who has access to this data?

7: For how long is the data retained?

8: Is consent sought from the subject before sharing this data?

9: Please list all the persons consulted on the decision to release the above information (only position and organization)

I note that a number of local authorities, including Prevent priority areas, have proactively made public their Information Sharing Agreements and Data Protection Impact Assessments that are attached to Prevent and Channel programmes.

This includes Hampshire County Counil, which has released its Information Sharing Agreement; Lincolnshire Police, which has released multiple Information Sharing Agreements signed between itself and public bodies in Lincolnshire; Camden Borough Council, which has released its Data Protection Impact Assessment, and Blackburn and Darwen, which has released its Memorandum of Understanding. London Multi-Agency Data Sharing Agreement for Safeguarding and Promoting the Welfare of Children is also publicly available.

I look forward to your reply.

Sam Andrews

Data Protection, Lincolnshire Housing Partnership Limited

Dear Sam,

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request.

The Freedom of Information Act provides public access to information held
by public authorities, by way of the requirement for these authorities to
publish certain information, and to respond to information requests from
members of the public.


The act is only applicable to public authorities such as government
departments, local councils and such like. Lincolnshire Housing
Partnership are a charitable trust and not a public authority, and
therefore we are not able to respond to any requests for information under
the FOI act.


Kind regards

Lucy Dant

Data Protection Business Partner
