2 Information that we hold

2.1 The Community Wellbeing Forums (CWF) in Corby, East Northants, Kettering, and Wellingborough, are VCSE-led collaborations that aim to improve the wellbeing of residents in defined geographical areas, reduce health inequalities, and improve the wider determinants of wellbeing that affect those residents. In order to achieve this, each CWF will host regular stakeholder and member meetings and develop action plans that are delivered at a local level through a Local Area Partnership (LAP).

Personal data is being collected as an essential part of the CWF so that we can contact individuals regarding membership and engagement in the CWF, and for monitoring purposes.

We will share individual information with the Chair of each CWF, who will be elected from the Voluntary, Community, and Social Enterprise sector. They will only be able to use individuals contact data in the operation of the Forum.

  • Name
  • Organisation (if relevant)
  • Email address
