View our Freedom of Information Policy and Procedure here
NSCD is a public body for the purpose of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
We are accountable to the public, and we try to make our actions as transparent as possible. Members of the public can check that our efforts are undertaken to the public benefit.
Under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), in most cases, we must confirm whether or not we hold a specific piece of information, and if asked, make it available to the public. There are a number of exemptions to the FOIA which allow us to withhold information if it is not appropriate to release it, however we will always act in the public interest.
We must respond to you within 20 working days of receipt of your request in order to comply with the requirements of the act.
NSCD is committed to promoting an understanding of its ethos, values and activities, and so far as is possible and permitted under law, it will provide members of the public with any information it holds.
On the rare occasion that it is appropriate to make a request for information held by NSCD please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
