The ICO exists to empower you through information.

The ICO seeks feedback from public authorities before providing new types of support to assist them in dealing with FOI requests. This is to help ensure the support meets the needs of FOI practitioners. The group provide feedback via email or online to the ICO on a voluntary basis. For more information about the FOI Upstream feedback group and what we do with your data, please read our privacy notice.

We’re keen to hear from a variety of different sectors. Fill in this form to apply to join the feedback group and we’ll contact you if your application is accepted.

Please note that we can only accept applications from organisations based in Scotland that are subject to the Freedom of Information Act 2000, rather than the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.
