We may need to share your information with Services within Fife Council and their Arms Lengths Organisations (ALEOs) to ensure you are provided with help, advice or services that you are entitled to. We may also record your information on a case recording system (via Fife Council) and with the team who provide support to us.
In order to carry out the functions above, we may also receive information about you from Services within Fife Council.
If you have concerns about the use of your personal data, please contact your Councillor direct in the first instance.
