My Advice Gateway
WELCOME TO MY ADVICE GATEWAY

My Advice Gateway is a free resource to help you quickly find the information you need to claim benefits, access help and support or look for a job or training opportunities. Other services include sections on banking, insurance and how to manage debt.

There is so much information available on the internet that it can often be a tedious and time consuming activity to search through the mass of advice that is available in order to find the information you need. Even government websites that have been set up to provide help can be difficult to find your way around.

My Advice Gateway has been built to help you find the information you need quickly and effectively. Links will take you to authoritative advice or the precise application form you need.

We hope you will find My Advice Gateway useful. If you do, why not tell your friends. . .

DATA PROTECTION AND GDPR
DATA PROTECTION AND GDPR

The Data Protection Act controls how your personal information is used by organisations, businesses or the government.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new EU regulation which has been designed to update and tighten the existing Data Protection Rules to cover the fundamentally changed way that personal data is created, used, shared, and stored with the widespread utilisation of internet selling and marketing.

GDPR is designed to simplify, unify and update the protection of personal data.

GDPR has been incorporated into the UK Data Protection Act 2018 which came in to effect on 25th May 2018

It grants individuals rights regarding:

  • Giving consent for data use

  • Access to your personal data

  • Rectification – correcting errors

  • Erasure – deletion of records

  • Processing restrictions

  • Data portability consent – swapping your data between companies

  • Ability to object

  • Automated decision making and profiling implications.
  • GDPR gives you more control over your personal information including the right to ask companies questions about the data they hold on you which, unless requested repeatedly, they must provide freely.

    Companies must comply with GDPR meaning they have to ensure your data is safe and only use it with your express positive permission otherwise they  risk very high fines.

    The Information Commissioners Office (ICO) is responsible for enforcing The Data Protection Act and GDPR in the UK and they decide exactly what corrective measures should be imposed on an organisation for an infringement or potential infringement of GDPR.
