What’s written about you

You have a right to see the information held by the local authority that has been written about you. When you are in care, electronic records are kept about where you live, who is looking after you and how you are doing. This information is kept in a social care file in your name.

You have a right to see information such as your Care Plan, your Pathway Plan and your Care Review documents. You can ask your Social Worker or an advocate to see these, and they should talk to you about them if you need help understanding them.

You should be given a copy of these documents, so remember they are confidential and must be kept safe. If you want to see anything else that has been written about you, ask your social worker. Remember you can only see information about you, but not about other people such as your siblings or extended family.
