CORE (COntinuous REcording) is a national information source funded by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) which records information on the characteristics of both Private Registered Providers’ and Local Authorities’ new social housing tenants and the homes they rent and buy. Any Provider registered with the social housing regulator, the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) is required to complete CORE logs.
A CORE log is completed with our customers as part of the sign up process. The CORE log covers information including let type, household characteristics, source of referral, previous tenure and details relating to housing costs.
Further information is available at: https://core.communities.gov.uk/public/index.html
All information recorded on CORE logs is subject to the data sharing and privacy legislation outlined in GDPR. A copy of the privacy notice outlining further details is attached.
