Why we are collecting your data
Basildon Borough Council needs to collect your personal data so that the council can understand what is needed most for young people in each of the borough's towns. This survey data will enable the council to produce a report which will help inform decision making.
- Optional information regarding inclusion and diversity including;
- Gender identity
- Sexual orientation
- Racial and ethical data
- Religion or belief

The main data (Age and Postcode) is necessary for the Youth Consultation. This allows us to assess the needs of different areas and ages.
The optional information is part of Basildon Borough Council's aims and commitments set out in its Inclusion and Diversity Policy.
