In order to ensure that ‘The Lowdown’ is able to continue to provide its services and advice to the children and young adults of Northamptonshire, the trustees of the charity have agreed, in the best interest of the individuals who use its services, to incorporate the charity into a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (“CIO”). Although this will not alter the day to day running of the charity, the legal entity of the charity will change, along with its registered charity number.
The change in legal entity means that all personal data the charity currently holds in relation to the individuals who use its services will need to be ‘transferred’ from the unincorporated charity to the CIO. In practice, this will not result in any change to the way that personal data is currently processed. It will not be accessed by anybody who does not already have authorisation to access it and it will not be physically moved from the place it is currently stored. Under the UK General Data Protection Regulations and theData Protection Act 2018,we are legally required to provide you with notice of the transfer to the CIO. Please read the letter, which you can access via the link below, for more details on how this transfer will affect you as a user of our services. It is very important that you read this letter.

Postcode Places Trust is a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
The lowdown has received £20,000 from the Trust towards our Heating, Lighting and Cleaning costs that have risen dramatically since the start of the Covid-19 Pandemic.
