Freedom of Information and Subject Access Requests

The Freedom of Information Act, Environmental Information Regulations and INSPIRE Regulations give you rights to access official information. This does not grant you access to your own data/information, this must be accessed via a Subject Access Request (see below).

Freedom of Information Act

Under the Freedom of Information Act you have a right to request any recorded information held by The Beckmead Trust. For more information regarding the Freedom of Information Act please visit the ICO’s website.

  • let us know how you’d like to receive the information (by post, email, or in person)

If your request is for information that falls within one of the Act’s exemptions we will tell you which one and, in most cases, why the information can’t be given.

Subject Access Requests
