Equalities data - what we might ask you
What might we ask you?
This will depend on what the information is needed for and we won’t ask for it unless it is necessary or relevant.
We will tell you what we need it for and how it will be used.
• If you are applying for benefits or housing, for example, you do need to provide all the necessary details to prove that you meet the criteria and are eligible
• When we ask for personal information on customer satisfaction surveys, it is so we can check that we are getting feedback representing residents from across the borough
• We treat all personal information in confidence and unless it is critical to the piece of work, your anonymity will be maintained.
• You may not even need to give your name, and a postcode on its won’t give away your identity
