Our ALEO

We have also established an Arm’s Length External Organisation (ALEO) called SB Cares. SB Cares carries out Adult Care functions on our behalf which were previously carried out in-house by our Social Work department. SB Cares is wholly-owned by us. We and SB Cares are collectively referred to as 'the council'.

Our Data Protection Officer is also the Data Protection Officer for SB Cares.
