Freedom of information

You might not need to make a formal request to get the information you need; as a public-facing body, we are committed to making information readily available and as easy to understand as possible.

However, the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act 2000 gives you the right to access recorded information held by public sector organisations such as ours. Anyone can request information – there are no restrictions on your age, nationality or where you live.

Your request will be handled under different regulations depending on the kind of information you ask for, eg:

  • The Data Protection Act if you ask for information held about you
  • Environmental Information Regulations (EIRs) 2004 if you ask for environmental information

Please note: your request could be refused if the information is sensitive or the costs are too high.

To submit a request, please email: foi@hlf.org.uk.

The following information requests were made over recent months:
