This document explains how The Wellbank Foundation (Charity number 1192329) handles data about living individuals.

Why do we need your information?

The Wellbank Foundation exists to provide grants that can make a difference and add value to the lives of disadvantaged people in the North East of England. It is a family trust that only provides grants to registered charities, not individuals.

What personal data does The Wellbank Foundation collect?

Name, address and contact details for individuals applying and/or corresponding on behalf of an applicant charitable organisation and acting as a trustee, employee, or volunteer on behalf of that organisation.

These contact details are held as digital correspondence for communication purposes with regard to applications for and grants made to charitable organisations. 

How do we collect your data?

All the information we may hold about you has been provided directly by you, or by an organisation supporting you with your consent. The majority of the information supplied is on the Foundation's application form which is mandatory for all applications.

How do we use your data?

The main identifier is the charitable organisation and the collection and use of data relating to an individual only relates to their acting on behalf of that organisation. All of the data is used in relation to the charitable organisation with regard to grant making.

The data will be used for reporting to the Trustees for the purposes of assessing and making grants. The personal data for this is limited to the correspondent's name and contact details as given in the application form. 

This information is currently retained indefinitely for reference purposes if required in future years. The data is only shared with the Trustees and is not passed to any third party organisation.
