Open information policy

As a charity, Local Trust is not a public authority for the purposes of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (‘FOIA’). However, Local Trust is committed to openness and transparency and as set out in this policy and we seek to publish information about what we do unless there is an exceptional reason not to do so and where it is not already published elsewhere.

This policy applies to Local Trust in respect of its own operations, and to its role as the corporate trustee of Big Local Trust.
