My friend and her neighbours are concerned that their elderly neighbour is getting a costly raw deal from a local provider as he doesn't like to make a fuss. I emailed the District Council Ward Members for their advice as one is a relevant board member and was told that due to GDPR they couldn't respond, and had I asked the gentleman in questions permission before I shared this information.
Am I understanding correctly? Looking at the ICO website it appears that individual Councillors need to be registered in their own right as Data Controllers if they are acting for their residents issues. Most advice is only signposting at Parish Council level.
