Freedom of Information

Submit a Freedom of Information / EIR Request

You can make a formal request for information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. Our Freedom of Information publication scheme has been produced in line with section 20 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, under which the Information Commissioner has approved a new model publication scheme for use by all public authorities from 1 January 2009.

The Freedom of Information (FOI) Act 2000 incorporates laws about how Public Authorities are obliged to make information publicly available. The Act gives people new rights to access information and most of these rights came into effect on 1 January 2005. The Act aims to increase openness and accountability in Government and across the public sector by ensuring that people have the right to access information.

Any person who makes a request to a public authority for information must, subject to certain exemptions, be informed whether the public authority holds that information and be supplied with that information.

Individuals already have the right of access to information about themselves under the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and Data Protection Act 2018.  The FOI Act does not affect the rights already provided by GDPR and Data Protection. .
