The UK’s independent authority set up to uphold information rights in the public interest, promoting openness by public bodies and data privacy for individuals.

Now that you have assessed the extent of your service’s impacts on children’s rights you should create an action plan for addressing the risk areas highlighted in your risk assessment. You can apply the Children’s code recommendations to reduce the severity of the risks.

To support you we’ve developed an action plan worksheet, found on the second page in the self-assessment risk tool. This allows you to work through areas in order of risk levels, and gives practical steps you may wish to consider taking to mitigate them. This worksheet also contains an action plan template that you can use to capture the actions you intend to take.
