National Impact Survey
This study will look at the progress of families who have worked with East Riding Children’s Services, compared with those who haven’t worked with us but have been identified as eligible to receive support in:
- Increasing school attendance
- Getting people ready/into work
- Reducing offending/anti-social behaviour
- Reducing incidents of domestic violence/abuse
- Helping families to access support for health concerns and substance misuse
- Reducing the number of children being assessed as requiring help
It is important for you to know that your personal data (Name, date of birth and address) will be sent to a research organisation, the Office for National Statistics, who will link it with the information from the previously mentioned departments/agencies.
The information is then anonymised and sent to the Ministry of Housing Communities and Local Government who use the data to measure the impact of work done by local councils with families. You cannot be identified from the information sent.
The personal data gathered and combined by the National Office of Statistics cannot be shared with East Riding of Yorkshire Council, so it is not used to make any decisions about the support you currently receive and it will not affect any benefits or services that you may be entitled to. Your personal data will be destroyed at the end of the research period.
