Data Protection - Your personal information

Protecting your personal information

The nature of our work means that we have to record a great deal of information about our tenants. We only ask you for information that we need to provide you with a service. We take utmost care to keep this information safe.

Your personal information is confidential

The law says that we must never disclose information about you to anyone else unless it is an emergency, or someone has a legal right to access it, for example, the Police. If we have to disclose information about you, we will try our best to contact you before we do this. However, in an emergency situation the need to disclose would come first in order to keep people safe.

You can ask to see the information we hold on you

You have the right to access files or other records containing information relating to:

  • Your present tenancy
  • Your past tenancies (up to six years)
  • Support plans

 The law is changing

From May 25, 2018, the law is changing to provide you with further protection. You can read more about this here: General Data Protection Regulation. Family Housing will review the way it manages your personal information with the new changes.

Further information

You can contact us if you want more information.

You can speak to Farid Ali, Governance & Improvement Manager – on 01792 460192 or you can email us: farid.ali@fha-wales.com

If you believe that any of the information about you is incorrect, or incomplete, then please advise us and we will endeavour to amend this as promptly as possible.
