Your data: Autism Outreach Service for Children and Young People

Why we are asking for your information?

Aberdeen City Council’s Autism Outreach Service supports children and young people in school diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). A request has been made to the Autism Outreach Service for us to come and support you in school. The information we collect in this form is used to make decisions to help and support you when you are in school. Any decisions about the help that you need will be discussed with you and your family. 

Aberdeen City Council will only share information to get help for you.  An agreement has been made between the police, health, Aberdeenshire, Moray and Aberdeen City councils to share information. Your information might be shared with Education, Health, Police, Social work or a charity. We will ask you who you want your information to be shared with before we share it.

Throughout the time that we are helping and supporting you we will keep records on the support you have been given and how well it is going. We will keep this information for 1 year from the date you stop receiving help from our service. We may keep some information, such as the type of support and how long we helped you, but any personal and private details will be removed so that no one will know the information is about you. We keep this kind of information so that we can see how well the service is supporting children and young people with an ASD in Aberdeen.

Our legal basis

Aberdeen City Council is the Data Controller for this information about you. Wherever the Council processes personal data, we need to make sure we have a legal basis for doing so in law. The Council understands our legal basis for processing personal data in relation to a Child’s Plan as Article (6)(1)(e) of the General Data Protection Regulation. This is part of our public task under the Education (Scotland) Act 2018, Education (Additional Support for Learning) (Scotland) Act 2009 and the Children and Young people (Scotland) Act 2014. In carrying out this function the Council is also likely to process special categories of personal data, for example, information about your religion and ethnic origin. The Council understands our legal basis for doing so as Article 9(2)(g) of the General Data Protection Regulation, because processing is necessary for reasons of substantial public interest.
