Avenues achieves HSCIC compliance

Avenues has recently achieved compliance with the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) Information Governance toolkit (level two).

Protecting people’s information is important especially when working with people who may be vulnerable. Avenues falls within the  'Voluntary Sector Organisations' category and the requirements are focused on ensuring that all personal data, including of people that we support, is held securely, its use is fully understood, and employees are trained in understanding their responsibilities.  

Jo Land, Group Deputy Chief Executive at Avenues said, ‘I really appreciate everyone’s commitment to information governance. When supporting someone it may seem somewhat removed from the day job but employees in all different kinds of roles have embraced its seriousness, enabling us to achieve level two compliance by the targeted date. We are now working towards level three compliance’
