Privacy notice for FUEL


A privacy notice is a statement that describes how we collect, use, keep and share the information we hold about you. The privacy notice is part of our commitment to making sure we process your personal information fairly and lawfully.

Who we are

Achieving for Children delivers children’s services and the local authority statutory responsibilities relating to children aged up to 25 years across the boroughs of Kingston, Richmond and Windsor and Maidenhead. Achieving for Children is registered as a controller with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) (registration number ZA045069).

Achieving for Children has been funded by the Department for Education to deliver a Holiday Activities and Food Programme for six weeks over Easter, Summer and Christmas school holidays. 

The programme, which we have called FUEL, is targeted at children and young people on benefits-related Free School Meals, aged 5-16 in the boroughs of Richmond, Kingston and Windsor and Maidenhead. It aims to provide a range of fun activities that are easy to get to, provide healthy food and teach young people and parents about what is good to eat.

What personal information will be collected by the FUEL providers?

The FUEL providers who have been appointed by Achieving for Children will collect the following personal information from you when complete the FUEL registration form:

  • characteristics such as your gender, ethnic group, disability or learning needs
  • whether you access benefits-related free school meals
  • health information, including any medical conditions and medication currently being prescribed
