What personal data we collect and why we collect it

At the Community Centre

Everyone who uses the Centre is required to sign in (name, the first part of postcode and vehicle registration if parked in our carpark). We ask for this information for several reasons:
(a) to help us meet our legal obligations in the event of an emergency;
(b) for our public liability insurance;
(c) to feed anonymous statistical data back to our funding providers to show Centre use and outcomes.

We subsidise every single session that takes place at the Centre, the majority of pitch use for youth groups and all classes. On applying for funding, we need to show Centre projected usage and feedback outcomes. We can only do this if we know the number of people using each service. Individual information is never passed on to our funders, we use only statistical data.

Session registration

Parents or guardians are also requested to complete a session registration form for young people. We ask for their name, date of birth, postcode, for you to inform us of any health or special needs requirements, and for your consent to use any photographs in our marketing materials including website and social media.

Again, we ask this for several reasons:
(a) to help us meet our legal obligations for safeguarding and acting in the best interest of young people;
(b) to feed anonymous statistical data back to our funding providers to show outcomes;
(c) to ask your consent to use images of young people under your care.

Session Feedback

A feedback form is completed by the lead session facilitator.  This includes the number of young people involved, learning outcomes expected and achieved and staff/volunteers involved.  We collect this information to:

(a) ensure the services we offer are fit for purpose (legitimate business interest);
(b) to feed anonymous statistical data back to our funding providers to show outcomes.

Staff and Volunteer Application Forms

All staff and volunteers are appointed via an application process.  We ask you for your name, address, date of birth, National Insurance number, bank details, health information, criminal background checks, relevant experience and past workplaces and referees.

We collect this information to:

(a) meet our legal obligations in safeguarding young people in our Centre;
(b) meet our legal obligations in providing a safe place to work;
(c) ensure our business runs smoothly with the hiring of staff/volunteers suited to the role.

We will ask for references from your assigned referees and check your details with the DBS Update Service.

In the event of an accident or injury at the Centre

You or your representitive will be asked to complete the accident book which includes your name, address and details of any injury and first aid treatment.  We collect this information to meet our legal obligations.


We record CCTV around the building.  We collect this information to protect our Community Centre and pitches,  prevent crime and to use in evidence of a crime if commited around our building or on the pitches.

Live CCTV footage is only viewable in the main office, which is kept locked when not in use.
