Why is this research happening?
Wavehill has been commissioned by Cornwall Council to undertake a research and evaluation study of their UK Shared Prosperity Funded Good Growth programme.
The programme, through targeted investment in high value and high growth sectors, alongside efforts to improve the productivity of businesses across industries, aims to deliver inclusive growth that’s locally relevant and nationally significant. Investment will also be made into skills and training programmes which seek to elevate local talent and include a focus on increasing functional numeracy for adults across our population through the Multiply programme.
What type of information is collected through the survey?
The survey focuses on how effectively the fund and funded projects have been managed and delivered, its impact, and identify improvements for future funding programmes.
What is personal data?
Personal data means any information that could lead to a person being identified either alone or in combination with other widely-available information, e.g. their name, their address, or details specific to that person.
How long will personal data be kept for?
Wavehill will hold personal data during the contract period but will delete it six months after the end of the contract.
What is the legal basis for collecting and processing the data collected through the survey?
The evaluation of the UK Shared Prosperity Funded Good Growth programme enables Cornwall Council to understand whether the programme is working effectively. It is therefore used to support activities within Cornwall Council including the design and implementation of any future funding programmes.
The evaluation is being carried out by Wavehill on behalf of Cornwall Council. Your individual participation in the research is voluntary.
What is the purpose of processing your answers to the survey?
The data is used for research and evaluation purposes only. The data will be analysed to enable Cornwall Council to understand the impact and effectiveness of the UK Shared Prosperity Funded Good Growth programme. This will help Cornwall Council decide whether any changes need to be made to the UK Shared Prosperity Funded Good Growth programme. The data will not be used for commercial or marketing purposes and it will not be used to take make decisions about you as an individual.
Who has access to the personal data collected through the survey?
Wavehill will have a copy of the personal data to allow it to carry out the survey. Responses collected will be analysed by researchers at Wavehill to produce a report for Cornwall Council. This report will not identify any individuals participating in the research and attributable data will not be shared with Cornwall Council, or anyone else outside of Wavehill, unless you have given your consent to be included as part of a series of attributable case studies in the main report. Wavehill will delete all personal data within six months of the end of the project. Cornwall Council will not have access to personal data collected through the interviews.
