We collect the following, which is known under the Equality Act 2010 as protected characteristics data:
• Ethnicity
• Gender
• Age
• Religion or Belief
• Sexual orientation
• Disability

This information is used to help us determine to what extent different communities are/are not joining the ABN, engaging with ABN activities and most importantly to identify and remove barriers to participation. We are committed to becoming a fully inclusive organisation. All personal and “sensitive” data is covered by the UK data protection requirements with all questions having the “prefer not to say” option. Ideally however, we would prefer all to answer as fully as possible.
