The learning and the findings from SAVVI can support councils in addressing some of these issues through the following:
Examples of practice IG documentation, from ICO and a range of councils (there was something about a suite of documents relating to IG, including definition of riles, DPIA etc (INSERT LINKS)
It is recommended that clear definition of the purpose of the work will probably help accelerate buy-in to data sharing required. The programme has documented the SAVVI catalogue – which offers defined data sets and some example data sharing purposes. Adopting these may help improve the sharing of data between partners locally. The SAVVI catalogue defines the following
Specific data-sets (with recommended related data standards) that provide important vulnerability attributes.
– for both homelessness and for prioritsing accessing to services (during COVID-19). These purposes define the purpose and the scope of sharing data and define the specific value of identified data sets (
This website offers the opportunity for stakeholders to collaborate and input into defining further good practice documentation. In particular, for example, sharing examples of templates that have been valuable in accurately defining the purpose of the data sharing exercise and specifically defining the added value of each individual data asset to be shared.
DWP have defined the process and the templates that they are advocating to be used for data sharing requests and processing. These are available (INSERT LINK)
Standardising the terminology and definitions of common vulnerability scenarios
Enabling IG outputs to be shared so that others can see how partnerships have succeeded
