All local authorities in England have a duty to keep a ‘disability register’. The registers hold information about 0 to 25 year olds with significant special educational needs or disabilities.
The charity Amaze manages the disability register for Brighton & Hove City Council. The register is called ‘Compass B&H’.
What happens to your information
When you fill in a Compass Registration Form for Brighton & Hove, your information is included on Compass B&H. Your personal details are held securely by Amaze under strict Data Protection legislation and are not shared outside Amaze.
Amaze collates the information for Brighton & Hove City Council so the local authority can plan their services. So your anonymised information plays a part in helping to shape local services. See how stats are presented in our ‘Annual stats reports’ under ‘Stats and facts’ on our Resources pages.
All children and young people on Compass B&H receive a free Compass Card.
