The consultation seeks to update the Code to mirror the upcoming GDPR legislation and address the issues identified in the number of penalty notices levied by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) in the last two years.
As part of the aspiration of Connect Us, we look to link in with as many existing community groups and activities in order for us to be best placed to know and understand what is available in the community. We endeavour to actively support existing groups to grow and reach out further if this is the ambition.
We are working with a large population of the Wirral currently and working to support all to move forward, improve their health and wellbeing, increase their social connections and feel part of their communities.
We are mindful of the challenges the festive season can bring to many of the individuals and families who are known to us. Therefore, are thinking forward about the best ways we can ensure this is as positive as it can be for some of our most disconnected vulnerable community members.

Wirral Council is committed to encouraging local groups which make a difference to their environment and we are launching a new initiative to support the fantastic contribution made by volunteers to keep the borough clean and tidy. As part of this, the Council is purchasing new litter picking kits and a range of other equipment for use by groups, schools and residents and is working with the constituency teams to make these resources easy to get hold of by storing them in local facilities such as libraries.
To launch the initiative we are planning a week of cleanups across the four constituency areas in October to promote loving where we live and to encourage more residents to get involved.
