Access to information

Freedom of information

The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA) and the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004 (EIRs) give people the right to access information held by Hillcrest. Together these two laws are referred to as the Freedom of Information legislation. This legislation does not cover all information held by Hillcrest but we will respond to all Freedom of Information requests.

Under the Freedom of Information legislation, we must set out all of the information that we publish and how you can access it. Our Guide to Information details what we publish and contains links to where you can find all of the information listed online.

If you would like to request access to information we have not published, please email informationgovernance@hillcrest.org.uk or write to:

Business Services Team

For your request to be valid, it must:

  • be in writing (unless you are requesting environmental information, in which case it should be in a recordable format such as a recorded phone call)
  • describe the information that you are requesting
  • include your real name and an address (email or postal) so that we can reply.

If you would like any advice or assistance prior to making a request please contact Marc Hadden, Governance and Compliance Manager on 0300 123 2640 or at informationgovernance@hillcrest.org.uk.
