Finding somewhere to live
We need to collect personal information about applicants to assess the need for social housing.
We keep the information you give us private using data protection principles found in the law. We use an organisation called Northgate public services (Northgate) to store your information. Access is on a strict 'need to know' basis.
The transfer of data between us and Northgate is carried out securely in line with our data security rules.
More detailed information about the storage of personal information can be found in our housing allocation scheme:
