I’m pretty sure I can answer my own query here but would be very grateful of a second opinion.
I am in the process of reviewing the protocols around access to our Cautionary Contact List (list of members of the public who have identified as violent/aggressive towards members of staff). Recently we have outsourced our back-office services to newly established ALMO, which include Customer Services and Revenues & Benefits.
What we would like to do is to establish a joint Cautionary Contact List which can be accessed by members of staff from both organisations. What I’m wondering is whether or not just an information sharing agreement signed by a representative of both organisations is sufficient for sharing this kind of information?
Also, once someone’s details are placed on the register do we have to tell them that we will be sharing that information with another organisation other than the Council?
