Social Services Data Breach

Have you or your dependents been the victim of a data breach due to a social services provider? Depending on the impact this breach has had, you could be entitled to up to thousands in damages.

One of the highest cited reasons why people do not initiate compensation claims of this nature is both the hassle of filling in paperwork, or fear regarding the amount of any fees you have to pay a lawyer. Well, worry not: we have made it easy for you to start the process of making a claim. On top of that, a lawyer will work on your behalf on a no-win, no-fee basis. Essentially, you only pay a percentage of any successful claim, and owe us nothing and if your claim is unsuccessful.

Am I eligible? How do I start a claim?

If you are aware of a data breach with social services involving you or any of your dependents, then you  most likely have a valid claim.

You will be able to see if your email flags any data breaches through that link, not just social services. 

To make a claim, simply input your details into our form. We will do the administration and lawyer-finding for you. Remember, the specialist we find will be operating on a no-win, no-fee basis. 

What is a Social Services Data Breach?

In the UK, organisations that process confidential information of people are named “data holders”. Under General Data Protection Regulation and Data Protection Act 2018, these holders are bound by law to put in place strict limitations on who can access the information, and when the information can even be manipulated by the company itself. 


When an unauthorised person gains access to the data despite these protections, then this is considered a data breach. The term covers all information under the company’s protection and can be anything from your name to financial information. Considering that Social Services are organisations that promote the welfare of children and vulnerable people, you can probably imagine the amount of information stored is likely to be highly sensitive in nature.

To prove just how heavily breaches are penalised in the social work sector,  an incident in  2012 saw a family receive graphic details of a child neglect case, including the accounts and circumstances of several other family members. As a result of that mistake, the Information Commissioner’s Office penalised the council in question £60,000.
