Information Governance, Safe and Ethical Data Sharing

  SDCA; Documents Logo


Our success requires us to be able to share our data effectively and safely in the way we collect, store, manage, share and exploit our data as a strategic asset, enabling us to better deliver effective insight. 

The partnership has built an infrastructure that enables:

  • A robust approach to data management with a focus on improving data quality and accuracy
  • The ability to store, manage and share partnership data lawfully, ethically and proportionally
  • Our ability to manage data related risks with the associated reputational benefits and business benefits this confers
  • Measurable benefits in our shared ability to use data to enhance the collective understanding and interventions from agencies in line with each project identified; by supporting the effective development of capabilities to interrogate, analyse and report insight from our data. 

The SCDA has a single framework to simplify the complexities often encountered with partnership data sharing with an Information Governance Framework and Collaboration Agreement that balances the risk that information presents with the value it provides. Our framework is underpinned by ensuring that everyone will understand their responsibilities and comply with the legal responsibilities surrounding information. 

Our approach is agile and evolving to ensure that all partners can inform our practices and build confidence in us working together. Each user case is unique, and the data shared bespoke to ensure compliance, security and quality considerations inform the collaboration of multiple data sets, offering differing perspectives and insight into complex challenges. 

The SCDA has a strong focus on Data Ethics which ensures we minimise discrimination and harmful consequences associated with mismanagement of data. The moral duty of the use of organisations data is key to all stages within all our work and is specifically scoped as part of the data impact assessment undertaken for every project. 

All partners remain Data Controllers for their data and maintain control over what data is shared with us, to ensure that all parties can foster trust in our approach and grow with us to leverage the benefits that exist in collaborative insight.
