Regenerate-RISE: Privacy Notice for Clients

GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) coming into force on 25 May 2018

Regenerate-RISE is committed to protecting your privacy along with respecting your personal information and we will do all we can to keep it safe.  It is really helpful for us to obtain your personal information and keep it on record and the only time we will pass it on is if there is a medical emergency, or for monitoring purposes with Wandsworth Council.  We will not sell or share personal details with third parties for the purposes of their marketing.

How we collect information about you

When you first attend Regenerate-RISE, we will ask you for the following information:

·         Name

·         Address

·         Date of Birth

·         Telephone Number

·         GP

·         Next of Kin

The reason for this is two fold:

1)      If we need to call a Doctor or an ambulance in an emergency, we can pass on the relevant information to the GP or hospital in order that they can give you the best care

2)      We are funded by Wandsworth Council and we are asked to give them the following information:

·         Name

·         Date of Birth

·         Post Code

Client Information Form (CIF)

We also ask for additional information for our Client Information Form.  That consists of:

We keep the information you give us in the following ways:

Protecting your personal information

The security of your information is very important to us.  We do ensure that there are appropriate controls and procedures in place to protect your personal details.  For example:

·         Your Client Information Form is kept in a locked cabinet

·         The Card Index File is kept in a locked cabinet when the premises are not in use and in the office during the day – for easy access

·         Information on the computer is password protected

·         Information on a mobile phone is password protected

·         Information sent to Wandsworth Council is password protected

We do have to let you know that despite all the security and protection that we put in place, there is always a small risk that the security could be broken and therefore you do submit data at your own risk.  We are committed to undergo regular reviews as to who has access to the information that we hold on you.  Currently, within the Centres, the following people could have access to all or some of your information:

·         Staff

·         Volunteers

·         Trustees

·         Local Authority

It is important for members to inform staff if their personal information changes at any time.  We will also keep records of any donations you have made for at least seven years.  If a client leaves us a legacy, we will also keep that information to administer the gifts and to communicate with the families of people leaving legacies.

If you ask us to cease communication with you, we will keep a record of your name only.

Right of Access

You have the right to ask for a copy of the information we hold about you.  If there are any discrepancies in the details we provide, please let us know and we will correct them.  Please ask a member of staff if you wish to see these records.  Please request a copy if you would like one.

Your Agreement

We will ask you to sign an agreement for us to keep your personal information on our system.

From time to time we take photographs of activities and members and these are used in the following ways:

·         Leaflets

·         Website

·         Instagram

·         Posters

·         Banners

We will need you to give us permission for your photograph to be used in the above media and will include this in the agreement that we ask you to sign.

Other Information

The General Data Protection Regulation also covers the personal data that we hold on Staff, Volunteers, Donors, Relatives and Visitors and Regenerate-RISE will be preparing a Privacy Notice to cover the variety of people that we work with and come into contact with.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask at any time.

Some kind of heading

The weather today is about as windy as I have ever seen it in London. On the radio they sais it might be gusting at 60mph! Certainly felt that strong when out walking the dog.

Hope that the rain holds off as we are having a birthday picnic tomorrow. Whole family – social bubble (I think).

The New RISE Reablement Centre

Regenerate-RISE has been fundraising to build a 10 bed unit to enable older people to rehabilitate after staying in hospital, before being able to return home. We were planning to build this above the Platt Christian Centre in Putney but currently our landlord, Livability want to sell the building and although we have put in  an offer equivalent to an independent evaluation, it has been rejected.  We are now considering our options and will  keep the website updated with any news.  We have appreciated so much all the support from the local community throughout the Covid-19 crisis, it has been amazing and it is our intention to continue to serve the community across Wandsworth in reaching the isolated elderly through a programme of care and support that meets the needs of older people.  Our service may have to change as we are living in very challenging times and we intend to do our best.  We will keep the community updated with our progress.

RISE and the future of Platt Centre

The Platt Centre and the Platt Mission prior to the new building has been providing support to local people since 1807 and currently we do not know what the future holds for the Platt Centre due to the fact that the landlord, Livability have decided to sell the building.  During the Covid-19 crisis we have provided a service across the borough and this photo is of the tree outside the Platt Centre with photos of  volunteers and key workers who have dedicated their time and emotions to serving people with Covid-19 or who are at risk of Covid-19.   It is our way of saying “Thank You” to all those who have helped us throughout the last 6 months as well as to others who have supported in the community.   Back in the late 1800s, the Platt Mission was a thriving Church with the largest Sunday School in the borough and in the early 1900s they began a Band of Hope, provided food for the poor and generally served in a variety of ways.  In this current year, Regenerate-RISE has continued along the same lines but focusing on the vulnerable elderly – still provides food to those who cannot go out and supplies to those affected by the pandemic.  We provide emotional and psychological support to the lonely and those who are afraid of the future and we hope that, if we are not able to continue at the Platt, that Regenerate-RISE will find a suitable premises to continue our work from.
